Went on a location scouting trip yesterday, and I would’ve stayed the night, if I had brought bug spray and bug netting……oh well. Moose Creek is the location, it is off the same road I went for a day trip a while back, but closer to the main highway and on the creek itself….
The walk in site, which have trees at good distances apart for hammocking, were I to camp with a group, I would mount the hammock one end on the tree further back, so as not to have the tarp lines too close to the fire.
The sign at the South West end of the area; next to where dirt road stops at a gate; which means the area South of this and to the East, is not open to unauthorized vehicles ,I am not sure of hikers though.
A Notice posted by Sweet Home Rangers; detailing that some sites in the area may become day use areas or closed to camping due to trash and dumping of things…I did not find such evidence, perhaps it had been cleaned up before.
Moose Creek from the bridge, the campsite I scouted, is to the left, East of the creek, while there are other campsites to the West of the creek, and several more up the road leading North east up into the mountain..
And I decided I wanted to test this hammock under pad I made from a Wal MArt mattress topper; unlike blue Closed Cell foam, Open cell insulates best when not compressed; so hanging it like an under quilt helps a lot…..
Detail of the suspension triangles for mounting hammock under pad and under quilts; I will be revising them to include plastic toggles so I can just loop the under pad suspension to the triangles instead of tying knots.
