Man I love a hammock for the south east! Hard not to be comfortable and enjoy a spot like this. I don’t get out as much as I’d like but I wanted to share the setup.

Warbonnet Thunderfly tarp
Warbonnet blackbird hammock
Hammock gear incubator Underquilt
Enlightened equipment top quilt.

I love the warbonnet hammocks. I think they are the best for summer months light travel.

Cool.

Question ... being from the NW, I don't recognize the large leafed plants around your camp. What are those? We have rhododendron which look a bit like that and also something called Saddler's Oak, but not exact.

I'm experimenting with hammocks, not sure if they're going to work for me or not. If I sleep on my back I snore so bad I wake myself up so I'm experimenting with lay-flat designs rather than gathered-end hammocks.


Anyone who thinks there's two sides to everything hasn't met a M�bius strip.

I’m not sure what those are really? It’s slippping my mind. I’m digging to see if I can find it.

Yes, Mountain Laurel. Rivals the alder thickets of Southern Alaska. Deer and Bear love to find a cozy spot in it and lay down.

Pretty neat setup blgoode, have contemplated going that route myself.

TomM1 it is so comfortable and honestly. Sitting and putting by shoes and socks on is the best part! I have hung over logs, rocks, water has come in under me. It is so warm. I’ve taken my setup to 16 one trip. With a zero Underquilt and stacking a 20 degree and 30 or 40 degree top quilt I can do temps from summer to max low in my area.

I prefer a basic gathered one hammock for its simplicity. I’ve never tried a flat bottomed hammock so what do I really know. I just know a gathered end means more coverage in a smaller tarp and no great on paper but not in real life problems are associated with the traditional design. Check out Warbonnet outdoor hammocks. They have a bridge style hammock also. But you will need a wider tarp for the wide ends.

One advantage is you can use your ground pad in them.

You will have to look up the info on their websites. Different needs have some different costs.

Example 10’ blackbird different than. 11” blackbird hammock. You may need a 11’ and I use a 10’.
