Labor Day, when many are off work and the kids are out of school. What better way than to spend the day out-doors with family. This day Curtis and Christina took the family to Honeycomb campground on Guntersville Lake. The four kids stayed in a large tent which allowed plenty of play room for their mess and in case it rained offered an area for family game time.
Curtis and Christina sleept in their ENO hammocks. A Guardian bug net was required of course, Christina wouldn’t have it any other way. Curtis was glad of the “command” but wouldn’t let her know it. With any campground around water there are mosquitoes and the netting of any material seems to attract them. One easy tip to keep them at bay is to spray OFF bug repellent on the Guardian Bug Net. Pulling it away from the Hammock and spraying keeps the oily residue from getting on the hammock and causing a grease like stain. NO MORE MOSQUITOES!
Sleeping in hammocks is an adventure in it’s own. You totally hear everything, whatever your surrounding, the woods or the beach, it is total nature bliss. Although, being in a campground on Labor Day, there are others who like to stay up till 2am, and you hear that too….
Taking the Yeti cooler on weekend trips is awesome. It will hold ice for 7-8 days, but that isn’t really needed for a overnighter or weekend. However, keeping ice and drinks ice cold and ready is. With the cooler’s capability of keeping cold so long, it keeps water from forming prematurely and soaking everything in the cooler. We love our Yeti and it makes a great seat if we need another chair around the campfire.
