    Thursday week Hollister near Medoc Mountain
    High 69 Low 49 Mostly sunny
    Great weather for first full day of hang.
    Gunner&Terminator, this will be a great hammock camping trip. Sam and Abby will be good guard dogs for our camp. We need to put Sam and Abby on Keto diet...ribs,steak&eggs, cheese...to help reach peak condition. They would agree, only eating potato chips when no one is looking...

    Maybe I’ll get to see new Turtle Tie suspension.
    I’ll be using my new off the wall suspension, I call S&D suspension.
    It is a novelty suspension, requiring use of daisy chain tree straps. Dutch’s lightest daisy chain.
    It’s not ultra-light nor ultra-compact but good enough for me to backpack.
    Although modular (can be taken apart easily),
    All parts stay stuck together, no small parts for me to lose, leave behind, misplace.
    Never jams
    Never slips
    No knots—except in build
    No hardware

    A carabiner would be easier and much faster, but can lose or misplace carabiner with me borrowing it to use on something else and forgetting to put it back...the truth is...I like to tie knots!

    Remind me, to show amazingly fast and easy tripod knot used by Indians—way faster and easier than Boy Scout lashing. Also makes a more secure tripod.

    Count me in! I will be coming Wednesday. As an "Elder of the Tribe" I would like to provide some mature guidance for you youngsters. But, as my better half keeps reminding me, I haven't yet been capable of any semblance of maturity!
    I'm much to young to feel this Dang old!
