I'm curious why you keep the sunglasses. Seems like they wouldn't have any real value. Maybe I'm totally off...

OK, everyone, as fall gets closer (and...yuck...winter) I need some suggestions on a high quality but inexpensive underquilt.  I want to do some cold weather trips in the hammock this year.  I've heard the Hammock Gear Incubator is good, but seems pricey to me.  Can I get anything for around a $100 or less?

Did you see the post in the group by Paul Gibson for Arrow Head Equipment's sale?  I'm thinking about the Jarbridge which is $75 this week.

SOPA and PIPA are the WRONG way to end piracy. Tell the world!
Millions of Americans oppose SOPA and PIPA because these bills would censor the Internet and slow economic growth in the U.S.. Two bills before Congress, known as the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Sena...

If you're getting rain water running down hammock suspension lines, it can and will run down tarp lines as well. If that tarp line runs under the tarp, you will get some drippage. Just run it over with the same setup and you're fine.

Hey everyone! I'm looking to get out for some late fall/winter hammock backpacking in Nov or Dec.  Anyone have any tips on staying warm?  I know I need an underquilt for my Hennessy.

Also, does anyone know where to get the best deal on the Hennessy hex tarp?  I think the cheapest I've seen online is about $65 with free shipping.

Thanks in advance!

Lots of discussions on Hammock Forum --> Sub forum --> Weather Protection and in the general forum as well.

Lots of tricks including a hot water bottle at the feet.  When testing the really cold temps make sure to have an exit plan, use it if need be and then you can try again.

Our Fall Hammock Hang in the Big South Fork NRRA in Kentucky. This was a great trip, and we're looking forward to many more like this.

Great. Another social media tool to figure out. Must admit Google+ on the desktop is much better than the mobile app. Now I understand all the hubbub.

This National facility is not as bad as some, but also not as nice as others (e.g. SFO). Overall, it was not a particularly great or terrible experience, but somewhere right in the middle. This facility has a nice selection of vehicles, and even though everything I wanted was taken by everyone else getting off the shuttle before me, another vehicle was replaced almost immediately by National staff, so I can't complain. The Jeep Compass I got was nice, clean, and drove well. The Emerald Club definitely makes it easier to get in and out, and the free bottled water on pick-up was a nice touch. Being able to quickly drop off is also what keeps me coming back. The shuttle service definitely needs some work as the shuttle from the facility to LAX broke down at the first stop, causing many of us to have to run across the airport to our terminals. Instead of having lots of extra time like I had allocated for, I just barely made it to the gate in time. National is not bad, and if you take advantage of the mobile app and all of the services they offer you will get the most out of your rental experience. If you are not an Emerald Club member, I highly advise becoming one.

We did the Casino Royale room is a team-building exercise and it was a fantastic experience. The puzzles are challenging but not impossible, and it really gets everyone working together as a team to solve them. I highly recommend Breakout either as a corporate retreat or a fun family outing. I'll definitely be back.

Service was good. Staff was courteous and helpful. However, vehicle selection for Emerald Club was poor. My only car choices were mostly Chevys, Fords, or Hyundais. I found the last available Nissan Maxima, and it was in pretty rough shape. The car was relatively new, though, with only a few thousand miles on it, and it drove nicely. When I returned the vehicle, I had to "go through the motions" like every other renter instead of just "dropping it off and going" like I normally do with Emerald Club. Why treat your club members like everyone else? Overall, it was a decent experience, but I've had much better luck at other National locations such as Melbourne, Florida and San Francisco. The Emerald Club is still great, but needs some work in Greensboro.
