Wow, what a busy month! We start out with an interview of Brandon Waddy from Warbonnet Hammocks, in Evergreen Colorado. Starting camping as a teenager, a college friend introduced him to hammock camping, and the rest is a history that you get to hear about in this month’s podcast. After telling us about his business and his own personal backpacking kit, Mark and Jonathan chat with Brandon about the fun stuff we do in our downtime after arriving in camp.
Next, we move on to a discussion about the Amok Draumr and other 90 Degree hammocks, and some of the positives and negatives of this particular type of product line.
In this month’s new product review segment, Mark tells Jonathan about a prototype of the “HangTime Hook”, a ridgeline device holder designed to solve the problem of how to do in-hammock entertainment.
Finally, congratulations to Jacob Paquette, the winner of last month’s drawing for a Tato Gear Stove. Thanks everyone for participating and sharing your thoughts on our social media channels.
