Big Shout Out to Robert Pinkham and Veteran Project 22

I want project 22 to stand out above all other motorcycle veterans organizations. I feel we can accomplish this by not limiting ourselves to set perimeter of help we offer. I would like one of our main missions to be creating and fabrication of adaptive equipment to help veterans be able to ride again when they didn’t think they could. Read more

Daniel Eggington and the Darien Gap Project

Great to hear from Hennessy user Daniel Eggington, who'll be taking the Jungle Explorer Zip on his latest expedition, The Darien Gap Project.  Here are his own words describing his  plans:

“The main aim of my expedition is to raise awareness for conservation and human rights.  The location is a pristine habitat of primary rainforest.   I will be trekking through the gap from Colombia to Panama along the Pacific coast,  also known as Colombias Choco department.

The Darien Gap is a gap in the Pan American highway, which is the longest road in the world.  The jungle itself is dense and hostile from countless numbers of dangerous animals and a growing number of illegal armed groups, the most notorious bing the FARC rebels who have now disbanded and formed a political party.  The once smaller armed groups are now fighting for control of the illegal businesses the FARC once had which has created a power vacuum and people trying to rise to the top of it.   

Why I am doing this is simply because I love adventure and I hope to raise awareness for the indigenous communities neglected or affected by the issues in the region.  Another reason is to raise awareness of the biodiversity of the region in a hope the organisations trying to reduce deforestation and increase biological diversity will keep it forefront of their minds.

4Season Hammock Set Up Information

Tom has some new advice about stowing the 4Season Hammocks in their Compression Sacks:

We are very pleased with our new 4Season Expedition and Explorer hammocks but in the last few days I saw a YouTube video where a guy was having difficulty repacking his 4Season into the compression sack.  I’d like to show you how I designed it to be repacked.

In the near future I will be emailing you a link to a video but for now, here’s a description.

1/ In the morning, your rainfly often will be wet from rain or dew.  Collapse your rainfly into the snakeskins and store them separately on the outside of your pack so that  the rainfly will be ready to set up the next evening before you open your pack. Untie the rainfly and snakeskins from the trees, coil them up and attach them to the outside of your pack.  

2/ To pack up your 4Season in the compression sack, start with the hammock tied between two trees with the foam pad in position and all your gear removed. Untie the side tie-outs.  If you have a dry, flat spot you can put the hammock down and roll it up. 

3/ If there is no dry, flat spot, untie the hammock from one tree and start rolling up the hammock and rope toward the other tree into a 7” diameter roll about 40” wide.  Hold the roll between your knees, untie the second rope and tuck it into the roll.

4/ Slip the 7” diameter roll into the compression sack, rotating it as you push the hammock and pad firmly down into the compression sack.  Pull the drawstring closed. 

5/ Pull the cap over the end of the compression sack and tighten down the straps.

That’s how I do it.  If you have any questions, just email them to info@hennessyhammock.com.

Best regards

Tom Hennessy
