Eventually, I bit the bullet and purchased a Warbonnet Blackbird, specifically a Double Layer 1.7, which refers to the hammock having two layers of 1.7oz/70 denier woven nylon. This allows for a higher weight capacity and also the ability to more easily slip in a sleeping pad between the layers if you choose to go that route; more on that later. I chose this one because of several features; an integrated bugnet, easy to use webbing suspension, impeccable quality, but more importantly the inclusion of what Warbonnet calls the footbox and the storage shelf. The former, is an extension of fabric that lowers the height of your legs allowing a flatter “lay” when properly positioned in a hammock, which … Read More

The trucks are parked. Base camp is set up. If we’re lucky, we’re in an area where fires are allowed and there’s a nice one roaring. It’s time to settle into our favorite camp chair with a drink, tell some tall tales, and dwell on the day’s adventures. It’s quite possibly the best part of our trips, the time we get to spend together as friends, around the fire, away from the hustle and bustle of this face-paced, dog-eat-dog world, social media, politics, and noise that has become part of everyday life in America.
We’ve been on the road for a little over 3 hours today as we’ve made our way up 24 from Capitol Reef National Park with a quick stop at Goblin Valley—our final destination for the day is a campsite near Rainbow Terrace Trail just north of Canyonlands. I haven’t truly showered in 3 days, unless you call wet wipes a viable alternative—I do not. All I can hear is the gravel grinding beneath my all-terrain’s and the squeaks of my dirt packed bushings as I weave in and out of the leading vehicle’s dust trails. Ahead of me is Steven, Patrick, and Dan in their 4runner’s. I’ve turned down my CB as the chatter is just a little too much … Read More
