    I've got a few small ones, but I've stopped using them in favor of hanging my pack from the foot end of the hammock. My reasoning was that wind kept blowing leaves on top anyways, so it wasn't...

    Giving new meaning to being called hard-headed. I recently visited a site I've hung at before. I went to attach my hammock to the same two trees, but didn't like the look of one of them though I...

    I'm glad the weather wasn't a problem. Be glad you aren't up there next weekend. I'm seeing forecast lows of 19 and highs of 41. I don't know about you, but that doesn't sound fun to me.

    I wish there were alternative bear spray designs. My daughter handed me the securing clip on mine during a water break on a hike. She's about eye level with the canister, so that would've been fun if...

    I keep it in my pack that hangs from my foot end. You occasionally hear stories about bears attacking people in tents and hammocks, so maybe I should keep it in the shelf on my blackbird, but that's...

    For a BBXLC: 8.4 degrees, roughly.

    Inverse sin of 16/110.

    Yeah, between Hammock Gear and Enlightened Equipment, it seems hard to justify that price for what isn't even their specialty.

    A few thoughts:

    I similarly saw the hassle it would be to reinstall the ridgeline, so instead I just washed my hammock in a tub.

    It's probably raising the foot end, but another possibility is if you hang it too loose (no tension in the ridgeline), the edge of the hammock tends to not be as tight I've noticed and creates a soft...

    The Pinhoti (towards the north end) was actually where I did my first hammock trip. An academy sports hammock with a blue tarp from Walmart. Definitely have upgraded since.

    I've only been back in Georgia a week and I miss being out there. I didn't do this hike, but everywhere I've been in the Sawtooths is fantastic. I'm impressed that y'all brought in a raft.
