Given my most recent acquisition, are the grounds "hammock friendly"?

I've been to Bend, but the Walmart there is a bit short on trees, IIRC.

Oh! untrue!
the area is covered with juniper trees, well, they are not really trees,, they used to be,, but now we have science,,which the US forest circus has used and deemed, and qualified the juniper as a "bush" and "weed like" and a sucking drain to the available water for the other trees in the region! So,, they have been culling large areas of juniper to save the other species.
Mostly tho,, where the junipers grow,, there are no other species of trees ,,,, may as well save that wasted water for the bison herds that don't live there!
rabbits and sagebrush rule!
Ahh, mankind and the infinite wisdom,, Juniper trees are prehistoric, they do not make good lumber,can not be cultivated or enhanced, offer no harvest value, and have no real redeeming aspects,(much like the native people that live in the same areas of environment), and are therefore,,"weeds" by the current definition.

prolly cost a lot of money to taxpayers for this bit of jean-yus!

We'll see!,, they culled all the junipers along the Chewaucan about 3 or 4 years ago,, so by now, there should be vast forests of pines and firs among the cottonwoods and aspens that grow in the new swampy areas. Be sure to bring your wetsuit for the really deep dives!

we could come up with our own ADV artificial trees if it's that bigga deal for you. I just crawl under the nearest 4x4 for shade when I get that drunk. For fuck sake,, DO NOT EAT the juniper 'berries'.!

Howamie doin Wachs?

Peterman - I must live in a different country. The magnificent Juniper is both revered and coveted in Montana. Just bring yourself, a large pickup truck, some burly friends and your wallet to any indigenous rustic furniture store where-in The Mighty Juniper has been transformed into a fine rocking chair, coffee table, hat rack, bed frame complete with head board, or even a useful household bench upon which you may sit and gaze upon the specie's glory while you count out large sums of cash to acquire these works of practical art.

You may also feel free to snack upon the berries as they have not been tampered with by bureaucratomunists - almost, but I think Tester & Baccus are on their way OTD in 2012.

Maybe I should bring my own Junipers to plant and proliferate? We also have Bison to spare should they be needed.

There are tons of hammock friendly trees. Used to have one set up for summer time siestas and I think the chains are still there to attach to.

Suggestion....

Although there are no organized rides perse' I would strongly recommend that you make known your riding ability before taking off on a ride with the Bend locals. There are a ton of trails to match any skill level.... just be informed.

Anyone traveling from Nevada? Thinking about loading up my GL and dualsporting it from Reno! Anyone interested send me a PM.
