- Dec 28, 2008Well, how cool is that??? Are you a guy Hollis or a girl Hollis? LOL!
I always tell people that Mom named me in a fit of post-partum
depression, and I used to threaten her that I was gonna name her first
grandchild Jerusha Chlorine, just for spite.
I have to try setting up this contraption this spring, and I'm really
hoping that I can figure it out. The figure-8 hookup on the ends is no
problem, but things like "how high" and "how far apart" and "how do I
make sure it's level" and "how do I get my tarp centered over
it"....Those are the little techie problems I gotta work out so it
becomes as easy as it looks in the videos.
What flavor of hammock do you have? Where do you camp/backpack? Any
plans for spring/summer camping?
There's somewhere north of the Adirondacks? Who knew? Yeah, I thought
the hammock looked downright perfect for our neck of the woods. Can't
wait to try it out. JustJeff has been a huge help with the insulation
ideas. (Thanks, Jeff!)
