Re: 9th Texas Fall Group Hang - November 9-12, 2017

There are also people who are willing to share their sites that they have reserved, including mine. My wife and I have a site reserved but we can accommodate a few other hangers as well. If you need a site and don't mind being with others, feel free to contact those individuals that have a site rese...

Re: Have we become too sensitive?

When I posted this, I meant "we" as people in general. I was not pointing a finger at anyone and saying that this or that person was any more or less sensitive than myself. I know I have bias and I know that others have bias. I also know that when I was in high school and took a debate class, we wer...

Re: Is this the future of campgrounds accommodating hammocks?

Well, from the pictures, it doesn't look like there are any tree from which to choose to hang your hammock. I for one am glad they are putting these structures up in the park. It keeps me from having to carry a "portable" hammock stand. As far as putting up a tarp, it can probably be accommodated, b...

Have we become too sensitive?

So, I am reading about a Google engineer who posts an internal memo [10 pages with cited sources] (Google as a company has promoted the use of employees doing this exact thing) describing what he feels is an issue with how Google is handling diversity in the workplace at his campus. I have read over...

Re: Personal Locator Beacons

I don't usually use anything in my first aid kit (except vitamin I) but I still carry it just in case. I also rarely backpack alone unless I am somewhere like a state park where I know I will run into other hikers on a regular basis. If I was to backpack alone in a very remote area, I would definite...

Hmmm, he must have changed his name again because the "Dealssatellites" doesn't bring back anything on eBay when I use the search function.

Re: Dang it's hot out here!

We just wrapped up our annual Butt Bake and I was out for 4 days and 3 nights. Temperatures were in the high nineties to over 100*. In the cooking area, it got up to 113* one day. At night, even at midnight it was still 90*. I have a Dream Hammock Sparrow and used the overcomer the first night and w...

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

The main thing I use on the site "that shall not be named" is their "For Sale" forum. I still buy occasionally from folks over there as they list some good stuff and there are a few things that I am still wanting to purchase (as if you ever have too much hammocking gear). Alas for me, most of the st...

Re: Guadalupe Peak National Park

DD Hammocks is selling that hammock stand here in the USA. Here is there link: Ultralight Hammock Stand There is also another cottage vendor that is selling something very similar but her poles are used double duty as hiking poles so you don't have to carry as much weight. The only caveat I see to t...

Re: Guadalupe Peak National Park

I have found mixed results when backpacking and camping in that area. There is a major emphasis on not harming the trees as this whole area was heavily logged during the mining glory days. I actually got a ticket for hanging a hammock up in Big Bend National Park (Chisos Basin in 2014) and then the ...
