**** Comprehensive instructional video clip for travelling mode disassembly as well as setting up … ***** Hanging without trees. Establishing the NoGround double post system… Images … Constant Loopholes … RATES SINCE APRIL 2016 … WEIGHT ABILITY:
NoGround adjustable posts have actually passed a 24 Hr static 287 # hammock lots, as well as multiple nights with a 140 # hammocker. In both situations the pole felt very strong. Due to variations in ground top quality and geometric set-up there is NO guarantee of weight ability. Make use of the system at weights greater that 220 # with caution. Just like all hammock relevant tasks– Hang or utilize at your very own risk.

Ground anchor pointers:
Irregularities with dirts and ground conditions make this one of the most bothersome task. Not all approaches will certainly operate in all places. There may be situations where none of the ideas function. As with anything hammocky, examination initially, then hang at your personal danger.
In almost all scenarios you will need two ground anchors each pole for stability.
All-natural objects: Anything that is firmly in position as well as you could affix a rope to could be your support. Tiny boulders, trees also away or as well little for a standard usage, fractures in rocks, logs, etc. could make excellent supports.
Guylines:
Use just guylines that are capable of fully supporting your hammock. I utilize 7/64 amsteel. Each guyline needs to be a minimum of 7-1/2 feet long (this makes certain a 45 level or much less angle with the ground). Longer is better. The shallower the guyline-to-ground angle is, the much less force the stakes have to hold and also the far better holding power they have. Spread the guyline anchor factors about 5 feet apart or in between 60 to 30 degrees apart. The further apart the anchors are the even more laterally stable the system will certainly be.

Various other notes:
If the ground is soft, or if you need a little extra post elevation, put a steady things under the foot of the NoGround post. This can keep the suggestion from sinking in, or could increase the efficient elevation without compromising pole stamina.

Truss line changes:
Each truss line has a little whoopie loop at the end for changes to each truss line. Adjustments are made without stress on the line. The little line quits to maintain the truss end caps ready will move (with force) if they require rearranging.

  1. I sure could’ve used that this past Saturday at the wide open ground with
    lots of tall trees by the Cross River instead of cowboy camping…

  2. That’s where I was, right by the bridge and between two occupied sites. Got
    in around 8pm – very dark – and didn’t want to even check the ledge & falls
    sites…too tired after unusually long 17 mile day. Next morning I was
    hoping to sight a wolf (like you did!) while hiking south along the river.
    Man, that is a fantastic stretch of trail in the morning!

  3. I think it would be super funny to film Kent trying to put this contraption
    together. I get the feeling Kent ain’t no rocket scientist lol.

  4. i would love two of these for my hammock in my back field or when i go to
    certain places with friends car camping. for backpacking i don’t think i
    could handle the weight with my bad back i am limited.

  5. Very interesting… this would give the capability to hammock camp above
    treeline in the beautiful alpine tundra, which is one aspect that has kept
    me ground dwelling here in Colorado. Thanks for sharing!

  6. This is crazy Shug. Are we living in the future, or what? Fun aside, this
    is quite nice engineering with the 3 small perpendicular supportbeams.

  7. Quite handy!! I have demonstrated this idea to people using a big stick,
    but never really tried to sleep in it that way yet. hehehhe

  8. Hmmmm very interesting Mr Shug. look forward to some updates with that one.
    I would like to see two of those in action to see if it were feasible.
    thanks, regards Maff

  9. Thanks Shug just watched one of her vids and I see two work perfectly fine,
    that opens things up a little for me.. thanks again

  10. Larry..you have to at least try hammocking once… all those hours bending
    over the trailer, the hammock will take those back pains away. ; )

  11. I sleep in a hammock and I’m a side sleeper too. Just gotta get the right
    hammock, and you’ll side sleep like a baby. I do.

  12. You can learn…just injure your shoulders or strain your lower back. Also
    remember that once you are all comfy with a sideways lie in your long and
    wide hammock, you can sply this way and that, as well as use a modified
    side sleep position. I suggest you get a basic 11 foot hammock from
    Dutchware, Simply light or other cottage manufacturer and give it a try!

  13. Yeah, it’s interesting, unique and novel but I’m guessing that 98+% of
    hammockers who don’t have two trees to sling are just going to opt for the
    odd ground camp. I mean, I’d prefer the comfort of a hammock but at some
    point I have to decide if that luxury warrants the learning curve
    equivalency of mastering a fully-rigged, 19th century, three masted,
    sailing vessel. haha!! Yes, I’m exaggerating but there is a learning curve,
    extra time required to set-up/tear-down time and my guess is that the
    weight isn’t insignificant. Again, one must decide how many pounds in the
    pack are worth a no-tree hammock lay, . I guess you’ll let us know Shug! :)

  14. Shug, if I dont have time to comment (oh phone) or have nothing to say I
    leave a smiley face to show I watched it and clicked Like. 🙂

  15. Impressive and strong but enough about me, thats a cool bit of kit and no
    bend under strain whats the weight.

  16. I think I’m going to pick up a set. Hiking poles, spreader bars, and
    potential tree replacement all in one. Seems well worth the cost and weight
    penalty .
