This year the kids get out of school the first week of June. We've already started making plans for our summer vacation. Kenan is taking part in the Michigan glass project in July, and we have a family reunion in WV...but otherwise our summer is pretty open.
With the garden and animals i prefer day trips and overnights, rather than week long vacations. We typically do quite a bit of day hiking on the New River and Appalachian trail, which are very close by. This year we are thinking about a weekend trip to NC to hike the waterfalls in the Pisgah National forest area. We'd do a little overnight camping and day hiking.
i was recently given the opportunity to try out a double camping hammock by #liveinfinitely , and knew it would be perfect this summer with all of our hiking and camping.
Kenan and i took a break from working yesterday to take the dogs hiking on our land and relax down at the creek.
We found the perfect location to set up our hammock. It is incredibly easy to hang up. It comes with Poly-Filament Webbed tree straps with incorporated dual looped stainless steel lashing ring and unique triple running stitch to prevent stretching while still allowing simple setup almost anywhere!
Excuse my weird face, i can't take selfies. :) The double hammock is huge, it fits two adults comfortably. It's guaranteed to hold 450 lbs It measures 9' 10" long by 6' 6" wide. It is actually big enough for two adults to sleep in it. It comes in several colors, i picked out the gray and blue. Online the color looks more navy blue with bright blue trim, but it's actually a lovely slate gray color with a teal blue trim. It also comes in green or purple.
When it's not in use it conveniently folds into the included gear pouch measuring 6"x 8" and only weighs 18 ounces which makes it the perfect portable hiking, festivals or backpacking hammock. You can truly take this anywhere!
Getting cozy down by the creek. Man, i could get use to this! Kenan has been coming down here and setting up the hammock every morning and enjoying a little peace and relaxation before starting work.
Our view laying down. i love looking up at the tree tops.
The Double camping hammock by #liveinfinitely is really strong and durable. Set up and take down is really quick, so it is perfect to take hiking, camping and use at festivals. The hammock is made from weather resistant nylon. It is quick drying, mildew resistant and machine washable. They are backed with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
We are still in the process of planning out our summer, but i know we are going to be enjoying our hammock while camping, at the local festivals and even just set up in the back yard! i am so ready for school to be out, so we can enjoy more family time hiking. It's one of my favorite things to do in the spring/summer time. i'm especially excited to check out some new waterfalls, and set up our hammock in the trees near them and just hang out enjoying the sound and energy of the falls.
Life is good. :)
