    Hello From Californa's Central Valley

    New to the forum. Ive stalked around a bit and decided to join in. I got here by way of Buscraft USA.
    I got my first real hammy recently and have camped in it a few times and I'm looking to hone my setup and gear a bit. I'm using a ENO double nest and looking to make my own hammock here in the next few weeks. On the short list of projects I would like to make my own hammock compatible sleeping bag (the through the bag kind) and I was thinking of adding grommets to a wool blanket to suspend under the hammock to keep the old ham from freezing.
    I am also on the search for decent camping in my area. I'm looking for hammock friendly grounds I can drive or hike into without making reservations. Fresno, Madera and lower lakes like Hensley, Millerton and such are my usual stomping grounds.

    Welcome! FWIW I've "hung around" all around the Lake Edison area, lots of trees up there!

    Hey and welcome to the forum Loogaroo!

    I have not yet run into a hammock unfriendly camping spot around here. The availability of trees at some lakes makes it a challenge though. The Madera side of Millerton should have ample trees but Hensley and Eastman might require a little more of a walk to get the right set up. I had to set up along an access road at Eastman a couple of months ago. Bass Lake should be no problem and of course Shaver and Huntington have plenty of trees. Use tree straps and you should get no grief from the hosts.
    Happy Trails to one and all.
    Enjoy the outdoors wisely and elevate your perspective.
