As we start planning our adventures for 2017, we’ve been reflecting on what a great year we had this year. We visited some amazing new places as well as some of our favorite familiar spots.
To make it a bit easier to set up the Clark NX-270 hammock, we invested in a set of DEEQI Adjustable Tree Straps. These 12 foot polyester straps have 40 loops and can safely support up to 400lbs. These are fantastic straps. Easy to use and extremely easy to adjust. It takes some of the “guess work” out of where to hang the hammock.
How you camp is just as important as where you camp. Having a suitable shelter that fits your needs plays a major role in having a successful (and happy) trip. Back in April, I made the decision to switch from a tent to a hammock. It reduced the weight I carried, the amount of space my shelter took up in my pack, and the time required to set up camp. After a month of research, Steve made a similar decision and switched from a tent to the Clark NX-270, camo.
For months Steve and I have been talking about different ways to reduce more camping weight and started investigating hammocks vs tents. It took awhile but I finally decided to take a chance and bought the Hennessy Hammock Explorer Ultralight Asym Zip Hammock.
