Post-Seminar Info

Post to Twitter

Thank you for attending my seminar on hammock backpacking. Rather than killing trees by printing handouts I felt it would be more prudent to provide an online resource. Below you will find a list of manufacturers that were referenced or whose gear was utilized during the seminar.

I would highly recommend joining us for the 4th Annual Florida Hammock Hang to gain exposure to a full array of hammock gear. If you enter the raffle you might even walk away with a new hammock. That’s where my Flight Jacket down top quilt came from. 🙂 Join us MLK weekend!
