The Kootenay Escape sighted in Fort Langley

A wonderful November day drew out the hammock (with sleeping bag, thermarest, pillow, and mandatory book).

Cheers,
Dirk

That picture made me want to fill up the tanks and head out. Wish I had some time, any time left this year.

Dirk, sounds like a great idea to me.
This fall has been just great for getting out, I just wish I had more time.

Re: The Kootenay Escape sighted in Fort Langley

Something special about hammocks and camping. I carry two of them, one regular, one full netting to keep the bugs at bay. One thing I look for in choosing a campsite is some "hammock trees", but frequenly find none or only one....bummer.

I have worked out a solution for most treeless sights. I have a heavy hoop on the back of my Escape 17 (added by me) that serves as the spare tire mount, and more, that is sturdy enough to attach one end of the hammock with the other on a tree, post or the bike rack on the rear of my FJ. Just got to remember to unhook before driving off :P
