Snake skins are just pretty much a condom that rolls up at each end, so you slide them down over the hammock while it's still strung up and boom ready to drop in the big. The bottom entry is pretty nice in my book, just swing your legs up and in and the thing closes itself.

Just looked at the site, snakeskins are under accessories.

Edit2: explorer deluxe is designed for people over 6 feet and soles in side zip.

Life is what you make of it. When I was younger I was more then happy sleeping in a tent and driving a crappy car. Those days are over and I enjoy having the things I have worked so hard for. That said I also enjoy shooting stock class , at machine gun pumps , electro laser gun and everything in between.
I'll ask my girlfriend about some sand removal methods for ya. It's nothing to do with "what we have". I drive a $31k car, I'm in the process of owning a home and I'm only 20. It's the difference between taking a bus-house with you and y'know...going out into nature and camping.

I think there was one on their site but it was back ordered. I will look again. I am finding mixed reviews on the Lawson one I was thinking about. I will find something soon hopefully, camping again in July, but hopefully sooner too.

I have a 1972 triple E motorhome and bought it 3 years ago because I couldn't get up in the morning after sleeping on the ground. But still camp every chance I get at Indian Graves free camping south of Calgary in the beutiful foothills of the rockies.

My little home away from home. I use a one man Big Agnes SL 1 tent for when I'm on a bike touring around. I laugh at all you weaklings that use motors to power your self to camp areas (including those who drive a car to a lake with the boat/kayak to go camping).

Also, I actually live out of this tent for the time being. It's sweet minus experiencing the largest rainstorms southeastern Australia had in 17 years in this tent.

Sparky, you have cajones the size of watermelons man. I've always wanted to visit the outback, but id never live in it. It seems like everything out there can kill you.

Yeah, but you're still using wheels to get there...

Try hiking two or three days to get to the "campsite" that you're actually going to 'stay' at for a full night before heading back home. And do it across trails that clock five times the distance in the vertical as in the horizontal...



I'm starting to remember why I haven't gone camping in the better part of a decade. But I will admit to being more than a little jealous of guys who manage to time time for things like bike tours. But I am planning four weeks in BC for a mixed vacation. Staying with friends and family, with random camping trips spread throughout.

I really should start looking at options for a shelter. I really want a hammock style tent, but a friend expressed interested in sharing a tent for the trip. And she isn't the kind of friend you say no to on a subject like that.

Luckless, I highly recommend forgetting all but one of your sleeping bags. Except if your near Mar. He likes a good snuggle here and there.

heinous: You made my day. Your welcome to join me in my little homeless shelter, eat a can on beans by the railroad track and come into my sleeping bag. Naked.
