Episode 50 – Meet the New Hosts!

Episode 49 – Just do it!

In this episode, Jonathan and Mark get a chance to talk to a bunch of folks who have experience managing group hangs in their region. A big thanks to Addam Wesneski, Stacy Adams, Kristal Bentley, and Juan Quinones, all of whom were a great help to learn the ins and outs of doing a great job hosting a group of hangers. After the interview, almost all of us decided that the fall is a great season for camping unless you live in Southern California. After the panel discussion, Mark and Jonathan (and our new host Chris) chat with Shug about his experience carrying lighter and heavier loads, and the decisions that lead to carrying more weight for more comfort. Finally Gresh and Spiguyver have some good and novel ideas for handling the condensation we all experience when using a bugnet or top cover in cold weather. Show Notes:– If you want to find a group hang in your area, click here to see the forum in hammock forums.net– Check out Shug’s frost bib in this cool YouTube video.– If you...

In this episode, Jonathan and Mark go for a drive to do an onsite chat with Rick Towle (attroll), founder and operator of the Hammock Forums and Whiteblaze online forums.

Episode 48 – Better Than Expected

Episode 47 – Second Thoughts

In this episode, Jonathan and Mark take a vacation from interviewing hammock hangers and instead revisit some of the gear from previous episodes as well as some of the stuff they always bring and some stuff they probably won’t bring again.

Episode 46 – It’s Not About the Weight

In this episode, Jonathan and Mark chat with another hiking dad, Tim Watson, who spends his time documenting his experiences hiking and cycling on YouTube when he’s not spending time with his family. After some friendly banter about not using an underquilt (spoiler alert), there is some interesting discussion about Tim’s gear and then his Ramen Bomb. Finally, everyone finishes up with a quick comment about their hygiene kits. After the interview with Tim, Jonathan and Mark chat about powering their gadgets on the trail, and we finish up the podcast with Spiguyver answering a couple of great questions on the “Hanging Out” segment.

In this post, Jonathan and Mark interview Frozen, a backpacker and popular vlogger currently hiking the AT. We chat with Frozen about some of his experiences planning for a long hike, along with some of the things that have happened to him along the way (hint: don’t put a tent in a lean-to). We finish up with a quick chat about stuff we hate while camping. After that, Jonathan and Mark chat about the way hammock camping has become a much more international pastime, and how many people from all over the world are adding hammocks to their kit.

Episode 43 – Going Underground

Episode 42 – Walk With Me

In this episode, Jonathan and Mark have an amazing (and surprisingly long) chat with Rhys Hora, a class of ’17 AT Thru-hiker and contributor at the online hiking blogging magazine The Trek. We discuss his experiences from his first dose of reality and amazing sights on the trail to his love of his hammocks and their clear superiority over tents, especially on the AT. They also have an interesting conversation about their first aid kits on the trail, and how they’re different for different purposes. Finally, We keep Rhys on to discuss the idea that it might be bad for nature to enjoy nature in the trending topics segment. In our monthly segment, “Hanging Out with Gresh and Spiguyver”, the guys talk about food and different options on the trail. Show Notes: The video “As It Happens: Pacific Crest Trail” can be found by clicking on this link. Here’s a site that you can use to rent a SPOT locator (you can google one too). If you want to look at how TreeFool builds his first aid k...
