Jonathan and Mark

In this episode, Jonathan and Mark say hello and introduce the new hosts, Chris Duffy and Todd Quest.

After that, Jonathan and Mark interview the new hosts and then Chris and Todd turn the tables around and interview Jonathan and Mark. The topics are wide ranging and it is a fun way to transition to the new hosts and thank Jonathan and Mark for all they have done to get to this episode!

In this episode, Jonathan and Mark get a chance to talk to a bunch of folks who have experience managing group hangs in their region. A big thanks to Addam Wesneski, Stacy Adams, Kristal Bentley, and Juan Quinones, all of whom were a great help to learn the ins and outs of doing a great job hosting a group of hangers. After the interview, almost all of us decided that the fall is a great season for camping unless you live in Southern California.

After the panel discussion, Mark and Jonathan (and our new host Chris) chat with Shug about his experience carrying lighter and heavier loads, and the decisions that lead to carrying more weight for more comfort.

Finally Gresh and Spiguyver have some good and novel ideas for handling the condensation we all experience when using a bugnet or top cover in cold weather.

In this episode, Jonathan and Mark go for a drive to do an onsite chat with Rick Towle (attroll), founder and operator of the Hammock Forums and Whiteblaze online forums. After chatting about building an online community and the changes that have occurred in the past few years, we finish off the conversation by chatting about how to take a great online photo.

After the interview, Mark and Jonathan chat about setting up and a little about camping in the rain, and finally Gresh and Spiguyver have some great advice about how to avoid online scams and fraudsters.

Finally, a big welcome to Chris Duffy and Todd Quest. Chris and Todd will be taking over hosting the podcast over the next few months.

In this episode, Jonathan and Mark take a vacation from interviewing hammock hangers and instead revisit some of the gear from previous episodes as well as some of the stuff they always bring and some stuff they probably won’t bring again.
