19912Re: [Hammock Camping] Stealth Hammock Camping
- Feb 28, 2009I am over 60 and female, and I enjoy getting out in the woods, away
from people, now and then. I do camp with friends at State
campgrounds, but we generally try to find a site that's secluded
(island, or far side of a lake, away from other sites). I don't
understand RVs and have always preferred tents (and now my hammock).
But it's different strokes for different folks when it comes to
If I'm camping on private land, I ask permission if I know who owns it.
As a landowner myself, I like to know who's on my property. If you're
a LNT camper, there shouldn't be a problem.
Re: risk-taking, as long as you understand and accept the risk...go for
it. I've ridden in the back of a pickup more than a few times (mostly
as a kid), but if the law says don't do it, I don't do it. As for
other risks, have at it. Life is risky.

but I hate camping in a campground in a tent/hammock as I find it
noisy. When I camp at a campground I bring my camper. I purchased my
hammock for stealth camping. If your from the ought to be a LAW!
crowd this post is not for you. The beauty of a hammock is that you
can camp anywhere there are trees. Nothing beats getting back to the
roots of camping by going into a state forest in the winter where
there are no people (there ought to be a law crowd) around for miles
and setting up a hammock camp. Please! do not post why it's dangerous
to ride in the back of a pickup or why you should camp only when
smokey is there to protect you (you don't get it). I'm looking to
hear your adventures of roaming around the country for free and how
you set up your hammock camp. What make hammock did you use, gear
selection ect. My gear, snowshoes, hammock are packed and ready to
go. State forest here I come! Nothing beats hammock camping in the
winter with just you and mother nature. Lets hear your stealth
adventures. PS-here's a website www.halfassexpeditions.com you got to
read their survival skills blogs. Some of it is very fu
