Re: Morning from MO/KS

Welcome, Sheldon! If you are a noob, feel free to ask all the questions needed. There is plenty of experience with hammocks and insulation of same. Several of us have 5-10+ years of hangin in the woods and back yard.

Re: Brigde Hammock Question

Morning, quick question. Have seen some pictures that appear to show bridge hammocks that are reinforced with webbing at the ends where the spreader bars attach. Is this so? Everything I have seen to date on a DIY bridge has webbing running the length of the body. Appreciate any assistance and/or g...

Re: MD Pinnacle lightweight tarp for $29.99

I wonder if this touted UV protection translates to more UV resistance ( longer life/durability) for the tarp? "Our hammock cover are made from premium 190T Polyester water resistant and rip resistant material. 190T Polyester is much more expensive than other competitor Nylon hammock due to it abili...

Re: MD Pinnacle lightweight tarp for $29.99

17 oz! Stuff sacks, lines and stakes add another 7 oz for 24 oz total. Not bad at all for an inexpensive tarp! And who knows, there may be some advantages to being polyester rather than Sil-nylon(or not), plus it advertises high UV resistance. People should be all over this one if there are any left!

Re: Dog owners live longer

I can only hope it also applies to cats, as we now have 3 of the rascals. I most likely would have zero except for my wife's influence. We had one- Booger- for 19 years before he died and I buried him in the back yard. I was always a dog person and never cared much for cats, but that little devil an...

No the only weight I have is 1.5 pounds for the entire thing. Tarp, stakes, tie outs, beener and 2 stuff sacks.
Well, if all of that is included in 24 oz, then it cant be terribly heavy, maybe 19 oz? I'll know soon enough.

Re: MD Pinnacle lightweight tarp for $29.99

I recently acquired a new very lightweight tarp that is available from Amazon for $29.99 Here is my video review on this item. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnEJWysavew Just ordered one, seems like a real good price and claims to have extra UV resistance. Do you know the weight? I'm thinking it m...

Re: It's (record)cold up north! Anyone on this site up there hangin?

6 of us were out Friday night, 8 total for the weekend of our 2nd Packers/bears hang, with a low around 23. Nothing record breaking for early November in WI, but our first real cold this fall. It was fun to break out the 20° quilts, forgot how much more down they have than the 40° stuff I've used t...

Re: It's (record)cold up north! Anyone on this site up there hangin?

I attended the Packer/Bear hang last weekend in Wisconsin. While it was colder than usual for November - it was like hanging in December (just without the snow). So, it wasn't unheard of cold. Just colder than normal. I'm looking forward to the 3rd annual DaShack hang in Iola, Wisconsin in December...

Re: It's (record)cold up north! Anyone on this site up there hangin?

.............................................. My record with this setup is 6 F with a light breeze and small tarp. Doubling up on quilts really helps. Is that your hammock record period, regardless of what you were using? Because if so, we share that 6F record! Mine was in an HH Super Shelter with...

It's (record)cold up north! Anyone on this site up there hangin?

I know most folks at the site are Texans, and few other southerners thrown in. But I think a few of us are scattered about. Anyone up north/midwest, MN/PA etc? They are setting quite a few record lows, with for example a -14F in International Falls, MN! Wowza, that is sho nuff cold for early Nov! I ...
