This month’s episode includes a great conversation between Mark, Jonathan, and Marc Bohmann from Teton Hammocks, an up-and-coming cottage manufacturer of hammocks and hammock supplies. We answer the question, is there still room in the market for a new entrant in the hammocks game, and if so what kind of business do they need to be? After a lively discussion about engineering for sideways rain, we finish up with a chat about winter foods for camping and backpacking.

Mark and Jonathan revisit an old story – site selection. With more news articles about folks being hurt by choosing rotten trees, it’s important to remember to pay attention to the trees that we connect to for camping.

Finally, we know you’ve all been waiting for a review of the Chameleon, and we have it for you. Jonathan and Mark talk about their experiences with the new Chameleon from Dutchware.
