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.

Which plans for building did you use, if not your own? I think there are some how tos on Youtube.

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.

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!

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!
