I'm waiting on a Superfly for my Summer trips and was wondering how you all go about setting up in porch mode. I'm sure there a million ways, all correct.
Do you bring poles? Find sticks? Just pull the lines up to another tree?
How about guy lines? Any special techniques?
Let see how you do it. :rolleyes:
I tie to other trees if available. If not, I use my trekking poles.
If I can find, with a glace, a couple of long sticks then I'll use them instead of the poles...just cause.
No right or wrong way to do it. Just go with whatever mood you're in. :cool:
nor season... porch mode frames the view and opens conversation from the hammock. Life is good under the porch! :thumbup:

I just use my hiking poles turned up side down. I have left my tarp up in porch mode during several rain storms without a problem.

If car camping I'll take poles. Have had a huge lake form up there and had to get up and redo things in the rain. The way Coach has it will keep that from happening.
Best advice is to get out and try it. Here is my first night on the trail in a hammock with a Noah's tarp https://www.hammockforums.net/galler...6/hammock1.jpg
Later at a week long scout camp I put my poles on some logs to give me full headroom with my DIY hex tarp.
Before I got my Mamajamba I was using a poly tarp
Thanks for all the pics!
Really can't wait to get my SF.
Keep 'em coming.
