Just back from a couple of nights out in the hammock. Had a dose of the man-flu but a good time was had non-the-less.
Picked up my buddy on Tuesday afternoon then headed out to the woods, a few miles walk across the valley then up into the forest.

Ramsons!



Forget-me-nots (? - My plant ID sucks, please feel free to correct me :))



Into the forest



Interesting tree with lichen



Brew on the honey, and first decent bit of walking with new pack. Very pleased with it :).



The camp



Fire!



Nothing inspiring for dinner, just a LWWF and rice washed down with a 3-in-1. Then to a comfy nights sleep.

Woke to heavy rain, mist and a head cold.



Mooched around the forest for a few hours, but a bit miserable with no views and constant drizzle.






Nothing better than retiring to the hammock and enjoying a good book and the rain on your tarp. Pretty happy with my hammock set-up now. I was using a TW Green Hornet 1.8m, TW Sargasso storm tarp, a PLUQ underblanket and a Snugpak softie 9 to sleep in. A nice place to be if your under the weather (in more ways than one ;))








More rain this morning but got packed up in short order, tidied up and headed back down the valley to the car. Happy days :)

Looks really beautiful, thanks for sharing :cool: Shame about the cold but you're right about the good book and rain-sound :). You're adding to my interest in TW, do you use them a lot? Are they worth visiting, or indeed can one visit? The kit looks very good and I've been looking at their website on and off for the past few weeks.

Thanks Elen, yes I really rate TW stuff. I have the tarp and hammock I used on this trip, plus the TW XL hammock that I use in winter (or in the garden). I think they're on-line only but Neil is a great guy to deal with :).
