Sleep Between The Trees

The ground is hard and wet, and you’re usually soft and dry, so next time you’re in the woods, try this nylon parachute-cloth camping hammock. Measures 100" x 57" with (5) feet of paracord at each end with carabiners. The math says look for trees less than 18-1/3 feet apart, although for comfort’s sake, give yourself a little slack. Folds into an attached pouch and is rated for up to 275 lbs. We’ll pick one in black or camo for you.

Break Your Own Geodes

Pop one of these roughly 1-1/4" dia stones into the toe of a sock, smash it with a hammer, and be the first person ever to see your real-as-Nature-makes-it geode!! Ninety percent of them have the familiar beautiful white crystals inside. Formed by volcanic action, they are found all over the world, but ours are from Mexico. There is no way to tell from the outside if they have crystal centers, but we will send you two just to raise your odds, and we haven't had a dud yet in our stores!! Much much more fun and satisfaction than buying one already cracked.
