- May 30, 2005I just got back from my weekend trip -- it went pretty well, though very
physically challenging - beyond what I had conditioned for.
The hammock and tarp came through three thunderstorms and one steady nights
rain perfectly. I stayed dry, I stayed warm, my gear stayed dry, everything
worked exactly as it should. Weirdly, I was so comfortable that I kept
disoriented in my sleep and waking up dimly thinking I was at home in bed
and getting upset that I hadn't actually left for my trip yet.... and I
would get so upset I woke up all the way and realized I was out on the trip,
and then be able to go back to sleep.
I only took a few pictures of the hammock set up on the first night - the
second night I was too exhausted - I almost forgot how to set the tarp up, I
was so tired. so, no pictures... but it was pretty much the same as the
I am totally in love with the ossel hitch. I was able to adjust the hammock
in the middle of the night when it had stretch a little too much just by
loosening and then sliding some more length into the free end on the hitch.
And that's that.
Pictures can be seen
there's a longer trip report with all the gory details on my blog.
