I awoke in the night to go to the pit toilet at Henry Coe Park (California). I saw a pair of eyes over where I hung our food (a coyote?). I wasn't scared then, but had trouble relaxing in my hammock the rest of the night, thinking how hungry the critter might be (for me). How can I increase the altitude of my hammock, for peace of mind? treefool.com is fun to watch, but more complex than what I want to do.
I'm thinking of putting my tree straps as high as I can reach from the ground. But then how can I get in and out of my hammock?
1. For safety, I'll use four tree straps, instead of just two, from the trees to my hammock carbiners.
2. Connect another strap, in the middle (not to the trees), to the carbiners.
3. Connect a ladder https://www.rei.com/product/877188/t...tweight-ladder ($70 seems expensive), or an etrier https://www.rei.com/product/474106/b...-6-step-etrier to the middle strap.
I think that I've got this worked out. EXCEPT, I'm not sure how to get down.
Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Have I exceeded my insanity allowance?
