Our Camper equipment.

We have quite a few Hammocks and we even sleep outside weather permitting. This hammock is 11 foot long and 7 1/2 foot wide, so that you can lay across it.
You can read here about the hammock angle.  Hubby made our hammocks from Taffeta material (banquet table-cloths.) Sourced from Tablecloths.com.

The Basics of hammock camping.

A Coffee percolator, Cast-Iron Lid Lifter by Lodge Logic® and #1/2 cast  iron “potjie” (pronunciation “poy-key”), on a portable Coleman propane stove. We cut a whole in the center of a coffee paper filter and put it into the percolator for easier clean up.

The egg rings, keep the eggs round and prevent them from running into the sauce.

We use an Aluminium pressure cooker, 5 quart (pretty and explosion proof!?).

Our fire-pit, which we use when we boondock, is made from a pipe culvert collar. There is a number 1/2 “Potjie” next to it.

When we boondock, we rake the campsite with a collapsible rake for broken glass, etc.

We use a small 12V 200 GPH bilge pump, to pump water in the camper from a water container. We got the pump from Princess Auto, but is available at many stores. Please click here for more information.

We sometimes use a camouflage net for privacy in campgrounds.

We use a shade-net, which fastens onto the canopy, provides shade, helps keep the mosquitoes out, is a wind-breaker and gives privacy when we camp in campgrounds.

    That braai pie looks delicious. I was amazed to see it was a pudding as my first thought was that it was savory. Have you ever fallen out of your hammock in the middle of the night? Is it secure even if you like sleeping on your side?

      We often fill it with savory foods as well, once we used left over Butter chicken.
      Never! I think because they are so big. The tricky part is getting in and out, but you just go and sit in it like a chair and then lie down.
      It should be secure, I have not really got the hang of sleeping in it on my side, but hubby has.
      You must try them out when you visit us, hubby even strings them up on the deck.
