The TV tower where we started is a long way - you can't quite see it in this photo but I know it's there.

MANY of us could just take a picture of the damn map, if we don't have the app on our smartphone!

    I went to Gander Mountain and looked at hammocks today. I think I might make one to see if I like it better as an mature person than I did as a youngun (when I could sleep on a concrete floor and wake up with no aches and pains).

    1. GREAT idea! You can come over and check out mine first, if you wish. Go to HammockForums.net and read up on ’em, too – lots of the videos you’ve been seeing are posted there, too. If you watch the ones by Shug and FLRider you’ll be watching some friends of ours. Not to mention Dutch, who makes hardware that makes it possible for me to do this!

      1. AND, the ‘bedroom’ hammock will be available soon, too. You have NO idea how excited I am about that little change.

      2. Here’s the link to Rider’s latest adventure, with video and print trip report. If you can’t see it, log in as me. https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/showthread.php?t=71412
