    I don't bring a chair. However, on some upcoming trips I will be bringing a bear canister and I'll be interested to see how that works as a camp chair.

    But generally, my concept of "camp" is pretty limited to setting up the hammock and sleeping. I'm moving more and more towards spending the bulk of my day walking. I'm not spending much time in camp.

    Re: Do you use a camp chair?

    I usually go with out a chair. If I'm car camping then my buddy brings his s10 with a camper top thats filled with everything one would need for a perfect car camping set up. I perfer to just find a stump or good rock. Ground is ok as well. When wet or raining I'll use the hammock as a chair.

    I've been using one of these for camping, as the majority of what I've been doing to date is car camping...usually less than 1km from the car.

    But thanks to you fine folks here, and some prodding on the trip section to participate in some actual backpacking here soon...I've ordered the REI chair and it'll be here Wed.

    Thanks again for making me order additional gear!!!

    Bear cannister

    I use a Garcia Bear Cannister for a stool.
    http://www.rei.com/product/624081/ga...tant-container

    Its a triple use item for me, protects food w/o having to hang it, stool, and I can climb up on it and get my straps about 1-2 feet higher in the tree. It is heavy tho.

    Not many people here like them, probably because of the weight. I like mine alot.

    I almost always bring my 18oz trilite stool. When I am not sitting in it it makes a great little end-table.

    Do you use a camp chair?

    This is what I like to use it's is quite comfortable. All you need is a GI poncho and some cordage.

    Is build your own an option?

    A lot of times, I will just bust out the 550 cord and my Scottish auger to make me something. Usually only do that if I am going to be in an area for a while and not car camping. Car camping = LOUNGER!!!!!

    Now that I am getting into the hammock thing, I might just spend more time sitting in the hammock. I will have to see.

    Is it really an option to boil water, or cook on a small stove from a monarch? Looks like I would have to stay kinda leaned back some to keep balance.
