We’ve all been there, sitting around with our friends, attempting to plan a spontaneous cross country road trip and then slowly the dream fades as the details become more and more difficult to work through. Well, don’t lose hope! Here is list of places to explore, from East to West (or Vice Versa) that I have personally been to. These highlights will hopefully give you some ideas, ease those painful and annoying details, and encourage you to go on the trip of a lifetime!   1. Huntington Island, SC  One of my favorite places to camp. Ever! I went in with expectations that the beach would be cool, but not life altaringly amazing. All expectations were shattered. Imagine Jurassic Park, but in the best way, sans life threatening dinosaurs.   2. Pisgah, NC Classic Appalachian camping. With one of the prettiest Autumn seasons and fly fishing streams galore, what’s not to love?   3. Red River Gorge, KY This place is not only an awesome camping spot, but has numerous climbing routes and bouldering options within the gorge, providing some awesome activities and entertainment.   4. Meramec St Park, MO Two words, Fisher Cave. The park is cool as is,...
I found out about the Pinnacles National Park back in 2013 when it was officially declared the newest National Park in California (it had previously been a national monument) and I have wanted to visit ever since. During Winter break, two of my friends said yes to camping with me at the park… during December… in freezing weather. It was a very spontaneous trip but we were so ready for an adventure that we went for it anyway.   So first of all, let me tell you something you need to know about this park, there are TWO separate entrances. There is the West entrance, and the East entrance. And guess what I found out only after arriving: there is NO through-road in this park! I mistakenly went to West entrance (since I was coming from Southern California) and my friends correctly went to the East entrance, (they were coming from the north) which is the only entrance that will take you to the campground. Repeat: if you’re driving to the campground, you need to go to the East entrance. After figuring all this out, I had to exit the park and then circle the outside to find the East...

1: Ice Breaker Just last week I set up my ENO on a Sunday afternoon. This was the first day that it was somewhat warm in Blacksburg, Virginia, so of course there were a lot of students out enjoying the sun around campus. Some people played Frisbee, while others threw around a football. To my surprise, a few people came up to me and asked what kind of hammock I was in; they had only ever seen rope-hammocks. Needless to say, hanging up an ENO in a common area opens the opportunity for meeting new people and enjoying the moment.   2: Power Hang Every once in awhile it’s easy to get in a rut, rushing through the day, trying to keep up. Since an ENO is so compact and easy to carry, it is the perfect tool to keep on hand to use in the midst of a hectic day. Taking a quick break is not only good for our mind, but also our physical health. I know that between classes I can get tired out, but sitting in my ENO for even a 20 minute break can help ease my mind and get me ready for the remainder of the...
Hammocks have been on a huge “upswing” over the past few years, and for a good reason! Besides being comfortable, hammocks provide a multitude of health and practical benefits for those who use them. These benefits are listed in the following infographic by AphidWear with original artwork by The Ultimate Hang!
This past weekend we discovered our new favorite place to hike and adventure—Hocking Hills. Ohio’s Hocking Hills is an absolute treasure and a mecca for weekend warriors.
If you’re like me than your schedule is jammed Monday through Friday between a full-time job, dog park playdates, grocery shopping, cleaning the gutters, and finding time to sleep. It’s easy to get caught up in a hectic lifestyle (busy means productive, right?) and forget to appreciate what is around you. So often I find myself wishing the weekend would come faster so I could spend some quality time in my hammock in a fun park or by the water. But in reality, there’s so much hammocking that can be done right in your own backyard (literally) that doesn’t require a lot of time or planning. Here are a few tips for getting the most out of your hammock during the week:   1. Hammock on Lunch Look around. Are there any trees outside your building or home? If so, pack up your lunch and take it to go! Put your hammock in a nice shady spot near work, home, or school and enjoy an outdoor picnic. An hour of fresh air, good food, and a relaxing atmosphere will leave you refreshed and ready to take on the rest of your day!   2. Hammock and Binge Watch Next time...
