south mt state park, nc
- a friend & i just got back from a night at south mt. he used my 1st
winter hammock & i used the 2nd winter hammock. each winter hammock w/
insulated top cover attached (which makes it somewhat like a speer
hammock w/ pea pod ...but probably not as well insulated) weigh about
4 lbs ea w/ straps.
it got down to 27 degrees f, w/ breezes around 3-5 mph.
i got overheated, but i was wearing qite a few layers, laying on an
expead DAM, & under a ray way quilt.
but, before i got warm, i had to hold a bottle of hot water
between my cold toes. MAN... that works great!
i could hardly take time to eat lunch after we set-up. we had a
couple other guys (from two near-by camp sites) come by to check out
the hammocks & ask questions. i`m not complaining. i love my hammock
& i think it`s great when others are interrested enough to ask lots of
questions & take pictures.
they where good folks & one took time to bring over a note pad &
pen to write down the web sites i had been telling them about.
of course i told about firstname.lastname@example.org & the speer
hammock site w/ it`s links, but i also gave him imrisk & tothewoods. i
hope i got that right. if not, i told him those links (& lots more)
could be found on ed`s site.
i told him about the camp-outs at hot spring (next one in april).
i also told him ed is a real nice guy & glad to help someone learn
about hammocks. hope i`m not going to get into trouble for telling
i carryed out an old abandoned army duffle bag full of trash (most
of which was an abandoned, cheap sleeping bag), & had an opportunity
to talk w/ two of the rangers about hammock camping. they didn`t seem
to know a lot about it, but listened w/ intrrest as i explained how
talk groups & sellers of hammocks are trying to educate people about
the proper, low impact, use of hammocks. they said they have no
problem w/ people using hammocks at south mountian state park.

relaxing, it's more than worth taking the few minutes
to boil up some water. Lasts an amazingly long time,
