    I use a 25lb 15' Placid Boatworks Rapidfire and in my adventures up in the Adirondacks I am always hammock camping! Trees are everywhere! Yeah, you may notice my fondness of trees because when you live at the beach they are far and few between.

    Bog Hollow, have you paddled the Whitney Loop yet? The Shingle Shanty lawsuit is over and we're now allowed to paddle the Mud Pond route instead of taking the carry. (in the dacks they are referred to as carries not portages)

    My longest hammocking trip (one week) was a canoe-camping trip in the Adirondacks.





    My boats:

    Bell Northwind - carbon/Kevlar
    Bell Magic - fiberglass/polyester/Kevlar
    Mad River Eclipse - Royalex Light
    Wilderness Systems Pongo 140 - poly

    Take it easy,

    Thank you for your input. If you do not take it with you, How many of you own a Kayak or Canoe?
    I've been canoe-hanging for about four years now and don't think I'll ever look back, unless it's a trip with my girls and they want me as the security dog in the tent.

    I like the idea of hammock camping while canoeing for three main reasons.

    1. It's easy to find a spot and you're up off the ground and sure to stay dry in the worst downpour.
    2. A guaranteed good night's sleep in a lighter outfit
    3. Feeding the passion for gear tweaking

    BWCA trip

    I am making my first trip to BWCA later this year and my hammock will be coming along and I can't wait!

    I have one canoe and 4 kayaks... so far. Kind of like hammocks, you'll have more than one eventually .

    I enjoy kayak camping, although on the rivers I tend to go on, most of the trees are up the bank on private property, so I usually have to use a tent and stay down in the publicly accessible areas in the flood plain.

    +1 on this challenge... most of my favorite fishing floats require some creative hanging to stay within the Riparian Rights of the river plain. I always get some ribbing from my ground dweller companions when I pass up perfectly level gravel bars to look for better hanging spots at each night's camp site.

    I always have a hammock in my boat even if I’m only out for a day paddle. You just never know when you may want to take a break in total comfort. I love my kayaks. I love my hammocks.

    Actually kayak camping is what got me into hanging. After spending a dreadful week on a kayak fishing trip stranded in a tent that eventually began to float. I started looking for a better way to camp than a tent. I considered campers including those little teardrop campers. I was about to pull the trigger on a teardrop camper when I found this forum. Even though I have 11 different hammocks that is still way less than the cost of a teardrop camper. And hammocks are much easier to travel with.

    While we bring our 14' canoe with us on most camping trips, having 5 people in the family limits how many are out at a time, resulting in no canoe trips. Hopefully we can find a cheap used canoe this year.
