Re: I SOOOO wish this forum was more crowded...

I started a semi-long post to this thread the other day and accidentally or subconsciously or both deleted it. I've given it some more thought and felt I would at least add my two cents worth on the matter. General thought is that HammockHangers.net is different from "the site which shall not be nam...

VIDEO: What's in My Pack

Lots of folks ask me what I carry regularly and what my base weight is when I hike. So this should give you a general idea of what I take. This was what was loaded for my most recent trip to Sipsey. This particular trip I packed heavier than usual. The final pack weight....which you'll see at the en...

Re: VIDEO: Backpacking Meal Preparation

Did I miss it in the video? How much water do you add when rehydrating? No ma'am. I didn't mention it. In truth what I have found to be true, whether a Mountain House Meal, my own dehydrated meal or others, is to put just enough water in to cover the food slightly. No more and certainly no less. I ...

Re: VIDEO: Backpacking Meal Preparation

That would seem to be a double post....not sure how that happened.....only one video. Lord, I don't think you would be able to stand watching one of my videos twice.....unless you're nuts.

VIDEO: Backpacking Meal Preparation

I get asked often about meal preparation for multi-day hikes. This is a discussion and demonstration of the philosophy and process of setting up my meals for hiking trips. I hope this adds value to your hiking and camping experience.

VIDEO: Backpacking DIY Snack Mix

I've had a couple requests to be more specific about the snack mix I use on my multi-day hiking trips. Hope this will add to your hiking and camping experience.

Re: chamelion by dutch...??? may be too close to Sparrow

I think that the market is large enough to suport both Dutch and Dream Hammocks. They are similar to each other I agree, but Papa Smurf still has the edge on custom made one of a kind hammocks. The Chamelian is a nice design and the D rings and modularity of it make it interesting. But it is still ...

Re: chamelion by dutch...??? may be too close to Sparrow

I have an opinion on this and at least one other "innovation" floating around. I will only share said opinion around a fire if asked and pressed hard. Otherwise, just don't really feel like getting nailed to that particular cross today or any other. There is one fact to be sure. The man has legitima...

Re: VIDEO: AT Section Hike Part 1

I enjoyed watching these again- when are y'all hitting the trail again? Thanks John. Actively seeking an answer to that as we speak. Trying to plan a mission trip that may take us to Canada. I hear they have some areas that are kinda nice to look at. If get a chance to get on the AT this year it wi...

Re: VIDEO: AT Section Hike Part 1

Thanks for sharing. I watched part one and two. Did you feel that you packed too many miles in each day. Seems like you guys where booking it. First day, not at all. Second day, for my son, definitely. In all honesty, if we had done 15 on day three, you would have added my name to the shredded list...

Part three covers the Friday of our trip. We hit the wall a bit and I decided we needed a detour of sorts. It's a shorter video but still has some good stuff in it. 8-)

This old news but thought I should post over here in case this side of the hammock world hasn't seen it yet. Hope you find it entertaining if not informative. Hopefully both. 8-)
