  • I made up a quick "bridge hammock" prototype last week and it works really well. It's not quite as stable as my Speer but it is more comfortable for me. While I haven't done it yet, I'll be making a more usable one out of nylon and puting a bug net on it similar to the Mosquito Traveler. I'm anticipating using hiking poles as the braces so I won't have to lug another item. I've...

First off, I'm loving this exchange of ideas. You all are giving me some great thoughts for my next outing. Tina, how do you make the dehydrater-made breads? I have made an "all in one" granola/gorp...

So, it's natural for me to pack the same way. I've had some similar thoughts about trail food. I'm not a full vegan, but tend to like that style of eating. The nuts and seeds are easy to...

  • I have the standard Traveler and sewed a mosquito netting on it myself. Then saw their mosquito traveler and realised I'd done exactly what they did. I can't talk about their zippers, but I've used mine for 3 years and love it. I've since made an insulated Speer type that I used most of the time, but for hot nights or day naps I still use the traveler. Can't beat the price, weight...

  • You'll want to sew one side of the baffle to the top piece and the other side to the bottom piece. So the netting (baffle) spans the two pieces of fabric, sort of a bridge between them. The idea is to make a series of rectangular tubes that you'll put the down into.

  • I'm curious. How did you make the beeswax/coffee grounds fire starter. Burning for 5 min on .6 oz sounds pretty good to me. Can you give us a recipie?

  • Hey, nice to see another rec tree climber / hammock camper in the crowd. It's great when you can find a nice horizontal branch to hang from. The one advantage that the treeboat has is you can hang it from one tie-in point. I use a Speer type hammock and plan to experiment with tying the hammock to an overhead bar (similar to Risk's Hammock Stand), then bring the lines together at...

  • I've owned the Traveler for about 5 years now and have been very happy with it. I got it before they came out with the Mosquito (or before I saw one) and I put my own no-see-um net on. I found the best way to keep the lines from tangling is to pull them both into the middle, then put one through the loop of the other one. They might turn around a bit, but never tangled more that...
