    Bugs, Hammocks, and Bacon *PIC HEAVY*

    Brother Rain was finally able to join us, after being MIA for the last few months.
    We started out the trip with a night hike in, Rain drove to my place right after work- so we carpooled the rest of the way.


    Once getting to camp, I decided to replenish with some juice.


    Breaking in a new pack: Frost River Royale Isle Jr.


    Rain trying out my pack


    Starting temp of the night


    Big Ant: Anyone know what kind it is?


    Spider: Name?


    Baby centipede: Name?


    I think we only ended up with a low of 50* that night. Perfect weather if you ask me.


    Kevin surprised us with his presence around 12am- good thing he gave us the dieng Giraffe signal. Here he is working on a whoopie sling


    Big Centipede:




    Another type of spider I cannot I.D.- trying to get a taste of my tea


    Harvestman tucked in for some camo


    Trying out my new Leatherman CS4


    Kevin working on a bow saw


    Kevin in a Warbonnet Blackbird with Hammockgear underquilt


    Rain's hammock setup to the left, mines to the right




    Rain's setup for the night: Eno Doublenest Hammock, Hammockgear UQ, Not sure about the tarp (hopefully he chimes in)

    He had this cool idea to use the hiking poles as spreader bars, on the side pullouts for extra space in his sweet new tarp.

    Just when I thought I finally learned how to cook bacon.

    This bug was very creepy, moved super slow and looked like a weird piece of debri


    Getting tired of the sunburst shots yet?








    The way out

    Great photography dude... Good job on the fuzz stick too... Still never get a stick, I just end up with a pile of fuzz at my feet, so I set it on fire and go about my business...

    Thanks!

    It took me a while to get down the fuzz sticks, I remember it being super frustrating- then one day it just clicked. Not sure what happened, but after that I was able to get it down pretty good. Go figure.. lol guess it was practice, and many of the same situations you explained.

    Love the pics! That wasn't a centipede... it was a millipede...
    Centipedes look like this:


    Oh, and are mildly venomous...



    some are tiny, measured in millimeters, others... up to a foot or so...

    I don't scare easy, but this baby would freak me out if it crawled across my bugnet:

    Thank you for the clarification, I'm not very well educated with bugs and plants. Hoping to change that though.
