Re: Tent camping at the Summit!!

Well yes on the tent question as we have a spot at ampitheatre campground, but it isn't really roughing it.
The real question will be between tent or hammock. I have camping hammocks and I am working on a rig to have a stand & use the roof rack to allow freestanding hammock use...just thinking out loud

Re: Tent camping at the Summit!!

I already tried a setup with 2 hammock & a tree (sounds like a great movie).
Hammock A tied to front mount of roof rack and other end to tree.
Hammock B tied to rear mount of roof rack and other end to same tree.
This made a nice V for my son & I to chat.
We have 2 types of hammocks, normal and ones with a built in canopy/net
When it is cold or buggy we use the net/canopy ones, when it is warm & bug free we just put 1 large tarp over both regular canopy's.
Now I want to work on a tripod or something that would replace the tree in the desert or campground.
Just an idea and can always use a couple of 2 person tents,

Re: Tent camping at the Summit!!

Seems like we stayed at a KOA in or around Ouray in the past (like 10 years ago). Does anyone know if it is still there and would be close enough to the festivities? Sometimes we stay in our tent and sometimes in a KOA cabin but if someone comes up with a designated camping area then PM me or email and we'll check into reserving a space with our fellow FJrs.

Follow the yellow brick.
Multivex mirrors, BudBuilt skid, Bandi mount, Midland CB, Firestick, Baja Rack, SAW full suspension, MB 72 black rims, Duratrac p285's, body mount chop, on engine number 2. But it's gone now... So I just hang around

Everything I post is for entertainment purposes only. Any comments about anything political is not intended to be.

My signature picture is our vacation home in Ouray, Colorado about 3 blocks from the FJ Summit HQ.
