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

A late reply. I belong to several forums with subjects other than hammocks or even camping so I want to relate my experience. Once I owned a weekly newspaper and belonged to a small town journalist web group. It was an email forum and I got a few posting everyday. For the most part it was people lik...

Re: Helinox Chair One

I got one this winter. My price was better than yours-my credit card points paid for it. It is short.I had a Joey chair which is claimed to be two inches taller-it was taller, until the frame broke. The replacement frame worked but the cover tore all of this with only about five or six uses. Lets ho...

Hey Billy Bob
What a difference a week makes! You may yet get a cold hang. This is Daytona Bike Week coming up and temps in the 30s.

Re: Warmest winter so far?

Here in south Georgia we have been around freezing a couple of nights which is about right. Our place in Tennessee was warm in January when we were there, but it had been around 10 or 11 the week before. It snowed after we left. When the electric bill comes, I don't mind the mild winter. Right now, ...

Re: New spot to hang at work with a view

How high can a 'gator jump? I've seen them jump about a body length across a canal to nail a deer, but it was only horizontal. I've left dead animals for them to eat, but was warned never to leave anything the same place twice. I do remember a big one, probably over 12 feet heading across a pond whe...

Re: The $35.00 Camp Chair

A little late to this but I bought a Joey ChaIr-about $40.00. It worked for four uses and then a connector broke. They shipped me a new one, then one or two uses later a corner of the cover tore. I reversed it and used it until another one broke. I got maybe less than ten uses out of the chair and I...

Question for southerners

Another noob question. Is it safe to hang from palm trees? I spent the weekend playing Grandpa in Florida at a hammock site in a state park. The only possible place to hang was to at least one palm. Matthew did a lot of damage, but I didn't see evidence of an entire missing tree. Last question I got...

Re: Who else needs it?

I know a lot about marriage having done it wrong before. My first and I found out we shared a common trait. We both preferred women. She may still be in a gay marriage but she did not let go after she got her divorce. In all honesty it had been years of unhappiness which had no resolution. I am no s...

Educate me. Topquilt

A dumb newcomer question I'm sure. but this site may have answers and not insults. Does an topquilt wrap all the way around you like a sleeping bag and if so what is the difference?

Thanks

I hate to show my ignorance.

Re: South Carolina---Fall Sprawl 2016---Santee State Park

I have a feeling this hang may not happen this year. Evacuation tomorrow and no telling what damage. I hope for the best for everybody in the low country.

Re: New Forum dedicated to heavyweight camping

Mine is from a motorcycle. Bulk rather than weight is critical. It combines some of both but I learn a lot from the backpackers. Maybe in the future a short overnight hike is in the works, but age and inactivity have taken their toll. With the truck, there is room literally for the kitchen sink. Tak...
