With easter it has been time for another bivouac!!
As the weather became better (still a bit rainy but doable) I decided to take te bike for a ride. From Nijmegen to Utrecht. Also my DD Hammock went along as warmer weather always means HAMMOCK TIME!!
As I arrived on the spot I wanted to camp my eyes were drawn to a tree which was pretty climbable. There was a branch which was exactly long enough to hang my hammock in between. NICE!
As I climbed in the tree to hang my hammock in it, I found out that the tree was quite slippery. So shortly after I was climbing with my bare foots to be able to catch enough grip as I could find. When also that wasn’t enough on the last branch to conquer I decided to disguise myself as a caterpillar and went tree hugging to the other side. As my hands were needed for grip, my hammock rope tightly in my mouth…
Yes, that must have been quite a sighting. When you have seen me, photo’s can be send to Bushcraftnic@gmail.com 😉
As I reached the other side of the branch I tight my Hammock onto the branch and I could use my hammock as a life-line. So far so good!
After the hammock I also attached the top-cord above and added the tarp to it. All set!
