Re: [Hammock Camping] Superstitions hike anyone???????
- Air trapped in a trash bag placed in under a hammock works real good
if something like a crinkled up space blanket in in the bag, which
will help the air become more "dead". I imagine air filled bags alone
would be better than nothing, compared to air that is completely open.
But still not very good except when compared to nothing and a nice
cold breeze of outside air blowing under your back.

University-- --but, allergies drove me out.
At that time the Nicaraqua Contra war ended-lots of
supplies ended up on the market. I found a person
selling at the Plantation Flea Market--what is called
a swap meet out west---a pirate's wharf on the Gulf
Coast. He charged $5/#10 can. I bought many cases. I
wish I had bought many more.
Starting to run low exc. on scrambled eggs---so,
recently bought a case of freeze dried cottage cheese.
The instructions say to mix with water at at least 72
degrees F. That wasn't available-so, after using a
steripen I tried mixing with Superstitions creek water

dry---sort of a sweet/sour taste. Very light for its
