    First Hammock Outing

    Hello all, my Dad and I went out on our first hammock backpacking trip last night. It was a pretty short trip, only a couple of miles, but it was a great trip. I would write a new trip report here, but i've already written a long one on my blog. For your reading enjoyment: http://jeepcamping.blogspot.com/

    Looks like y'all had a great time. Good to find out about the ants before you got set up.
    Everyone ought to believe in something....I believe I'll go set up the hammock!

    Nice trip report. I wish I had the chance to go hiking with my Dad before he passed away. He wasn't much of an outdoorsman, but luckily my Mom was.

    Nice write up- thanks for sharing.
    - Loki,

    "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
    Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
    The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
    while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."
    John Muir

    Really nice write up. I am envious of the time you share with your dad, mine passed when I was 21. Thanks for sharing the good memories from your hike.
