Ever since I first ventured into the bikepacking scene, I’ve been intrigued with the camping hammocks and have been eager to give it try. A few weeks ago an economical option presented itself that I decided would finally be my chance to give hammock sleeping a go.
A Facebook ad, complete with a very enticing video, popped up on my newsfeed. Not only was it a camping hammock but one that was rather unique allowing one to sleep crossways to the way the hammock is hung. Looked like a very comfortable sleeping position so I placed an order for one.
Here is a video of me and my brother opening the package for the very first time and setting it up… Or should I say ‘trying’ to set it up. Let me just say there is absolutely zero useful review information about a hammock in this video. The short video does, however, have some entertainment value.
I get a lot of questions regarding my gear and how it’s packed on the bike. So I have created a video doing a complete unpacking of the bike, revealing everything that goes with me and how I carry it.
Hope you enjoy the video. If some of your questions remain unanswered or you now have more, I would love to answer them for you. Please put your question in the ‘leave a reply’ section below the video and I will try to answer it as soon as possible.
Video I took with my GoPro while on the GDMBR is finally making it off the camera and onto the blog. This is my first attempt at time-Lapse video so it’s a little rough. Even with the camera set to time-lapse mode still produced a raw 10 minutes of video I needed to shrink down.
