Somewhere in Oklahoma. 2016.
Beautiful camp spot! Seems like there should be a bear or two in the background somewhere in those pics.
Planning on heading there this summer. I didn't think you were allowed to camp up there because of the large number of bears. Do you know if where you camped was "legal" or you just risked it? I would love to camp there if its legal. Maybe I just misunderstood. Looks like an awesome spot.
There probably was!

Took 4 weeks vacation, went for a wee ride (23 days & nights), went to 4 motorcycle rallies, I didn't sleep indoors for 23 nights but it sure was better than going to work!
At a couple of those motorcycle rallies:
Somewhere in New Mexico
How do you like that Tensa? That tarp is MEGA. Is that mounted to the tensa tarp option?
Carizzo Plain (CA.) We had it all to ourselves
The Tensa stand with tarp extensions is great! Here in New Zealand there is very little support for hammock camping in the campgrounds, a tent site is easy to get but two trees the right distance apart isn't universally available everywhere. The Tensa stand lets me use my hammock/tarp setup wherever others are able to use a tent (and also a lot better where the ground isn't flat).
I'm not sure I'd hike with the Tensa, due to the weight. But the bike has no problem with carrying the stand.
The Tarp is a Simply Light Designs - Winter Haven with 13' ridge line in SilPoly fabric. It gives me plenty of room and it very easily goes right over the entire stand/hammock. In porch mode there is plenty of room to sit or stand under the tarp, no problem sheltering under it with a couple of other people while waiting for the rain to stop.
I like hammocks, but wow that's quite the camp set up. well done.
bike by tent, at the end of the Cantung Tungsten rd. after a visit to the hot springs.
Nice tarp company. I went to their website. Amsteel or webbing lines on the Tensa? Would you have chosen the other if you were doing it again? I am looking at this so I don't have to carry tent and pad as backup. Thanks.
Alabama Hills , Lone Pine California
A beautiful place to wake up , although a very very windy night .
Thought my tent was gonna fly away , even with my 240 lbs of Pork laying in it .
Sleeping bag was covered in super fine sand , that made it in my MSR tent , somehow.
We were there in 2013 . Never saw any signs saying no . There were 4 or 5 tents there , just out of my photo .
Really all you have to worry about is these flying sharks .
This was taken at 3am . the high temp was about 47' . These critters will drive you nuts .
They are about a inch long and ferocious . We never saw any bears North of Fairbanks .Heard lots of Wolves at night .
But by far , the skeeters were the worst part of whole trip . Dang it !
I started with the UCR (Amsteel) but changed to the webbing. The webbing is a little bulkier, but not a big deal to me. I find the webbing more reliable, less likely to slip and need to be retensioned. So yeah, I actually have both and just use the webbing.
A tent would take as much space and with the stand instead you get the comfort of the hammock every time. I haven't attached my hammock to trees since I got this stand, it is consistent (always the same distance) and reliable.
