    I have always used a tent when I camped, but have been getting more and more interested in the high speed, low drag of hammock camping. I purchased both a net type hammock and a parachute material type. I'll be testing both out this summer. I also grabbed a nice tarp to cover it all up. It...

    I've set aside 500 bucks for a hammock, finally. I've been doing some research, and it looks like I'm gonna settle for the clark jungle hammock. Does anybody have any gripes about these things? Their website claims that the four season "insulating pocket system" of the NX-250 eliminates the...

    Well, we survived a quick trip to Florida to see my wife’s family. Had a nice time, but made it back so my son and I could do a little backpacking trip we had planned. It was just a two-night/three-day trip out at Mistletoe State Park in GA. It was just over 2 miles in to a nice spot right by a...
