Very nice.  Great camp.

Looks like a very relaxing camp. Was this at one of the Military camps?

Nice!!

Is that a whoppie sling with the tail coiled? I just use a Becket and 1" poly straps. I carabiner at the tree and leave the straps on the hammock in the stuff sack!! Super simple.

  It was.  This was at Camp Blanding / Kingsley Lake.  It would be a great place for a Krac outing mid week.  Spyder and I have access and they allow two tents per site.

It is.  I made a bunch of whoopie slings and soft shackles.  This was one of the Walmart double nest hammocks that I wanted to try out.  It was great!

I should add............the straps are also homemade from a roll of seatbelt material.

I love it.  It paddles great.  It is a bit on the heavier side, which as I grow older is becoming an issue.......or an excuse for a trailer.

I don't blame you. I've never had to portage poly/ABS/Royalite/aluminum canoe for very far, but when/if I upgrade from my lovely light little 15.5' fiberglass, I'm sure I'll have a long hard look at a set of wheels for the heavier/more durable boat.
