Completed #71 of 101 | Purchase A Camping Hammock

Friday, March 30th, 2018

 

 

 

I’ve always wanted a Hammock.  For backpacking or camping or relaxing in the summer.  I actually picked up one each for the kids also for this summer.  I hoping to do some hiking with them and one task is that all three of us will set up a camp somewhere and spend the weekend suspended in our own little shelter complete with a mosquito net.  Can’t wait to try it out and get used to it.

The CHILLAX Hammock is a double travel hammock with integrated suspension. Ultralight parachute silk is super compact and portable. Patented SmartHooks allow you to hang your hammock and adjust rope length in record time. You never have to tie a knot! Hammock and suspension are packed into an integrated travel bag. The bag or “stuff sack” is sewn onto the hammock so you never lose it. While you are hammocking, the travel bag hangs down and becomes a pocket for your phone, keys, or drink. No trees nearby? No problem. Detach the suspension loops (hammock handles) and the CHILLAX Hammock quickly converts into a beach or picnic blanket. The CHILLAX hammock is roomy enough for 1 or 2 people. Hammocking is better with friend(s)!

 It’s nice to get out and play some ball and run those legs.  I should be doing way more.  It was also nice to get the kids and do some Stealth camping in Ajax.  We snuck into the forest just behind Subway near Bayly & Westney and followed the river to our little clearing that we like.  Can’t beat camping with a Tim Horton’s not too far away.

Kids had each a pack and we also went out and bought some knives that they could carry around their waste.  We featured them in vol 3 of our Thug Life Series.  We pitched a tent by the river and we also brought a saw to cut wood for a fire and we cooked dinner over the fire which was cool.  We also played many rounds of Uno, “Ass-Hole” which is a fun little game that we like and also I taught them how to play “Poker”.   Don’t tell Mom.  She thinks we camped in the Rouge where there is showers.  Kids were safe and that’s all that matters.  The fun we have is none of her business as long as they are happy and safe.

We bought a cooler bag and put drinks and sank it at the bottom of the creek to keep drinks and sealed food cold.   You can see from the photo that Chantal took some coals from the fire and made some war paint for under her eyes.

It was a fun little camping trip and the kids liked how we were creative at roughing it.

Also the Raptors were eliminated from the NBA Conference Finals and it’s crazy that they were a couple of wins away from the NBA Finals and they lost to the eventual champions.  Crazy.

Pending – List3 | #26 of 101 | Go Camping with Raymond and all our kids together at a Provincial Park in Ontario

We need to go camping as a group.  I have a two room 10 man tent that we could share and we need to book a week and head up and visit 2 Provincial Parks and experience cooking outside and trying get the kids to be more independent and be responsible.

I’ve started talking to my kids about it and where we could go.  I’ve started to talk to my Nephew about it and where we could go.  This summer we could not line it up do to his son in lacrosse.

I want to get my kids to make a campfire, cook a dinner for us, set up the tent by themselves, jump off rocks and into the water, explore the forest and go hiking and learn navigation with a compass.

We are looking for the Summer of 2016
