Good thread to talk about your camping and other outdoor gear.

Made a purchase today on this Eno hammock. Reviews are really great and need something easy for Talladega trail ride in a few weeks. Hope it's as comfortable as people say.

Also picked up the Atlas straps to hold my big butt off the ground.

Will post feed back after an overnight sleep.

Picked up a Cabella's Outfitter XL cot today. They were having a pretty good sale ended up with a $129 cot for $64. This is the fat guy cot that will hold 600 lbs, is 80 in long and 40 in wide...think it's gonna be a good buy.

If I'm walking in and out I'd probably go instant coffee of some sort. Truck camping, percolator. Nothing to it, like to keep it simple!

Camped in the eno over veteran's day ride at sub 30F temps one night. Super comfy and I was fairly warm. I am sold on this sleeping arrangement but this insulated under quilt is critical to staying warm even below 60F. This is the cheapest of the 3 underquilts and it did fine.

Ember™ UnderQuilt

Also, hung the rain fly over head and let the sides drape down. Kept me dry and added more wind break from the cold.
ProFly™ Rain Tarp

Cabelas was running an Eno 25% off sale the day before heading out.

Overall, happy with the hammock setup and will use it more going forward.

If you like hammock camping this guy makes a lot of cool and helpful accessories. DutchWare Gear I have ordered from him a few times. I love hammock camping too. I have a thermarest pro lite pad that I place under me if it isn't cold enough for the underquilt and that works well for me.
