How has the hanging weather been where you are?

I think we have a nice warm spell coming, but we have been pretty cold and snowy here in MS this year, with a lot of below average days. elsewhere: " (Calgary Canada)9 Feb 2018 – “For this time period in February you have the most snow on the ground ever recorded — and in such an arid climate,” says...

Re: HH Ridgeline to Amsteel

I have not. Then again, I have never had any RR break on me. I don't pull then very tight. Usually, after I get in, they are a bit looser than when I set up. I do have one HH RL that I cut and inserted a(smallest) screw link, so I could get rid of the RL if I wanted to use a PeaPod. It also has neve...

If they are going to get paid anyway, why not just have them keep working and do their jobs?
Indeed! Why not?

Re: Very Thankfull This Morning

Roger that! I remember fuming when the feds closed the woods. Rather than only telling staff to stay home,and warning the public: You are on your own, enter at your own risk! And it never actually saved any money, as all were paid when they inevitably came back into business a short time later. It j...

Re: MD Pinnacle lightweight tarp for $29.99... 17oz

I just weighed it again in response to a question asked at Amazon, and on a different scale that measures in smaller increments, though I can't say which is actually more accurate, or if either is accurate at all. It weighed a tiny bit more on the other scale: 18.24 oz + .53 stuff sack= 18.77. Stake...

I just built a couple of turtle-dog stands and have them setup in my bonus room. But just bought some hardware to attach to the walls to free up some room.

Re: Hammock Stand

I have used a similar one for many years, and it is better than nothing. I have set some of my all time records for cold weather hanging using one in the back yard. It gets the job done. But there are 2 problems, other than weight and size if transporting to a campground: 1: it flexes significantly,...

I thought this was interesting: https://www.economist.com/blogs/democracyinamerica/2017/07/just-desserts Contrary to initial appearances, Masterpiece Cakeshop does not entail a clash of constitutional rights.

Re: Of Cake and BBQ at the US Supreme Court

Okay, I tried to listen to it I maybe made it about 10 minutes into it. But I can't take it for very long. Because as you know I am no doubt the extremist in my viewpoint on these things. And I find all the intricacies they were discussing about when a person could refuse a service versus when he co...

Re: 4th Annual Texas Frozen Butt Hang - Jan 11-14 2018

If you guys lived a little closer to civilization, like MS or even state of LA, I'd be all over this! I have not been to a group hang in a long time.

Re: Meet Roxanne!

I've never been on motorized bikes/cycles since I was a teenager, but I must admit that looks like fun! Biking around to various hang sites sounds like even more fun! Roxanne looks like a fun gal!
