A few things I tested:
Luxury Lite Cot (expensive but worth every penny) I have never been so comfortable sleeping in a tent.. Time will tell if it will hold up over the long haul.


Hennessy Hammock
This thing is Kewl. Quick set up and quick to pack up. Easy!! I didn't sleep in it, but will probably bring it on the Tri-State ride.

That is an Extreme exaggeration.
Later in the day I was barely able to keep up with Snakeboy66..

All day I kept thinking that this was baptism under fire. By the end of the day we were riding at increased speed and confidence levels.
Snakeboy didn't even pause at this water crossing for me to get my camera rolling, but He did get a quick video of me..

It needed to be tilted up more though because a lot of my video is shot too low.
Looked like a nice trip guys. I use VLC Media Player that lets me capture still shots from my videos.

Looks dope.

My Dad has one of those hammocks. Took it on a cross country cycle. He loves it.

Great video Cabrito! I gotta laugh though, every time I see someone with a GOPRO mounted on top of their helmet it makes me think of Teletubbies!!

When my dad did his cross country ride (bicycle), that Hammock treated him well. They're sweet.
