*i realized recently i mistakingly described the rock formations of the area so to clear up this mistake, please note that the rocks forming these canyon walls is Sandstone called the Schnebly Hill formation and was layed down over millennia caused from the expansion and retraction of shallow seas in the area. Truth is that several times in Earth's history Arizona was under water* here's a group backpack, camp and other such nonsense involving some amazing camping hammocks. These hammocks are made for camping and the gear used in this vid will keep us warm in temps down to the LOW thirties. The black tarp is a DIY project that has enough coverage for very foul weather, were talking blowing rain, snow, even hail. We are all season campers... so we need all season gear! you can see the ends are catenary cut (curved) so that the tarp will pitch nice and tight. Also, I have one end pitched with my hiking pole to give me a view of the creekside scenery. The hammocks themselves are designed to open up diagonally so that you can lay basically flat. Exept the "bridge" style hammock that lays very flat, but confines you to a more straight body position. I can lay in my Blackbird in the fetal position if I choose. many times I will fall asleep and wake up, 8 hours later, in the same position. I have in my almost 2 years of hanging realized this simple fact: there is absolutely no reason for people to overlook a hammock system, there are so many components that you can assemble to make a perfect system for you... and these things are catching on like wildfire - and for good reason: they make sense! THIS is where its at, backpackers... THIS is the future.
