    Well I think you should make more - I enjoyed that!
    Beautiful scenery, lakes galore.

    Sitting under the tarp in a rainstorm - no better place to be.
    Jumping right in with the hammocks - definitely can be a learning curve. Stick with it, practice more.

    I'll have to remember to have a sweet reward like that after my next trip.

    Beautiful area you have there! Keep working on the hammock once you and your dad figure it out you will never wanna sleep on the ground again.

    Maybe practice hanging the hammock some where close to home, put it up lay in it for a bit. then take it down and repeat the process. once you figure out whats comfortable and how to hang it you will get a consistent lay in it every time.

    Oh and make more vids!

    Nice trip and the video was excellent. I look forward to the next one... ;-) I like that area. It is one of my favorite places to stroll for quick trip. I'm glad we are getting water up there. I'm sure Washington can use it.

    Really good video for a first go Joe.

    2 things though....#1 skip the back up knot on the buckles. It's not needed and can actually cause the webbing to be pulled out of alignment and that could be potentially damaging to the webbing should the buckles grip it without even pressure. #2 what and where is the scale your pop uses in the last bit. I have been looking for something like that and not found one that works well that I like.

    Thanks for the tip, I'll do it.

    As far as the scale, it's old. I have no idea but my guess is that he's had it for years. Plus, it weighs a little light it seems, so it may not be worth it.

    Thank you for the encouragement everyone. I'll keep at it. Filming, that is. I wasn't planning on putting a stop to backpacking!

    Well, I want to see more videos from you too! You have a good “pointing for the viewer” technique, very accurate and not that easy to do. Your record is in tact... it rained

    Yes, the old head too high thing. It’s worth getting up and fixing it rather than not. You’ll be glad you did. I just learnt that. I’m also just starting to learn to get in and try it, before I hunker down for the night. That way I won’t have to get up in the middle of the night to do some tuning.

    Thanks for the first of hopefully many videos!

    More videos, after all my traveling the Uintas are still my favorite place to go. The weather there is always predictable, 80% chance of thunderstorms in the summer, 70% chance of blizzard in the winter.

    Hammocking does require fiddling to get it cozy. My worst night in a hammock is still better than my best night on the ground.
