Winter HammockingThough it might seem far from a wonderland at times, with freezing temperatures and icy sidewalks, winter has a lot to offer the outdoor adventurer. For the adventurous spirit, cooler temps open up the door for skiing, snowboarding, and all kinds of winter treks. When there is snow, even a familiar neighborhood can become an exciting new world of sledding, snowball fights, and shenanigans! Any winter activity will require special some preparation. From keeping your head, hands, and feet comfortably warm, to making sure you don’t lose any toes to frostbite, the proper precautions can make a huge difference. Here are some ways to make sure you’re not caught off-guard before going into the great outdoors this winter: The items you pack will depend on your specific activity. For example, if you are running in the cold weather, you should dress in layers; you can take some off if you get warm, or put more on if you get too cold. In the winter, you should always have extra gloves, hats, sweaters, and socks in case you need to layer up or if your clothes get wet — especially if your plans involve snow. Certainly, the equipment you need depends...
We’ve become a sitting society. Drive around the neighborhood the next time there is a snow day or teachers’ conferences and see how few kids are out riding bikes or playing in the yard. Computer games, coupled with parental concerns about safety, keep many kids indoors. But don’t worry! Here are a few solutions for transforming your outdoors space into a playground.
I recently decided that I didn’t like ENO’s Facebook page any longer. Not because I don’t like their products – I actually love them – but because of the photos and captions. They all show beautiful locations, perfect warm weather, picturesque views, and captions that read something like, “Don’t you wish you were here?” Well, of course I do, but I have to work today.
Live relaxed with Heights at 1301 Hammock Lounge Launch ENO and Mahoney’s sponsor Heights at 1301 Apartment’s first on-campus Hammock Lounge What do students taking finals want more than finishing exams? To hang out with friends! Luckily, Heights at 1301 Apartments, a Peak Campus Property, have teamed up with Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO), the premier hammock company, and Mahoney’s Sports, the area’s premier outdoors store, to create their very first hammock lounge in Johnson City, TN. The introduction of the hammock lounge was inspired by the successful use of ENO Hammocks as incentives to sign a new lease, or re-sign an existing lease at their Heights at 1301 location close to the East Tennessee State University Campus. Students living in the apartments were also requesting help to hang their hammocks indoors, a growing trend among young adults. “I am always looking for the ‘coolest’ thing the students want to keep them engaged, and the thought began,” said Heights at 1310 Property Manager, Nicole Woody. “Overall, our hammock promotion was successful and we have given away 23 hammocks.” The hammock lounge was created soon after and consists of nine 6’x6′ posts fitted with ENO Hanging Kits, holding a total of eight...
NOTE FROM ENO – Kara Kirtley volunteered to visit Haiti with Visiting Orphans, an organization that sends mission teams to work with children and communities in 12 countries around the world. We donated a few hammocks to Visiting Orphans to use for their volunteers and the children that they meet along the way. Hammocking in Haiti.  It has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? When I heard that was exactly what I’d be doing, I was over the moon excited. Last fall, I signed up for my first mission trip to visit Haiti through Visiting Orphans out of Nashville.  My team would leave at the end of December to work with Grace so Amazing Ministries in the rural town of Mirebalais, about an hour north of Port-au-Prince.  While there, we’d be working with the impoverished in local villages, including ministering to orphans who live in the street. I knew the trip would be difficult and it would be hard adjusting to life in a third world country, and knowing I’d have my familiar Eagles Nest Outfitters hammock to sleep in at night gave me peace of mind and something to look forward to.     I work at a...
February 3rd, 2014 – Asheville, NC – This year’s Winter Outdoor Retailer proved particularly rewarding for Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO), creators of hammocks and relaxation products for outdoor enthusiasts.  The brand hosted a friendly competition between America’s two most prestigious hiking trails and their conservation groups, the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC), and the Pacific Crest Trail Association (PCTA), in an effort to raise funds for trail preservation and management.  The event, dubbed “East vs. West: A Tale of Sister Trails,” marked the first time that ENO, the ATC, and the PCTA had collaborated on a fundraising event. In honor of the event, ENO sold their special edition ATC DoubleNest Hammock and newly released PCTA DoubleNest Hammock with a set of Atlas Straps for a show special of $50.  ATC and PCTA representatives provided booth visitors with information about trail preservation, and booth displays featured important facts and statistics about the two trails.  One hundred percent of the sale proceeds were donated to the ATC and PCTA.  In total, ENO sold 106 hammocks, raising $5,300. “We are so pleased with the outcome of this event,” said Lane Nakaji, ENO’s General Manager.  “It was such an honor to have the opportunity to...
