Okay...I've been scouring and e-mailing every possible site on this subject.( Since last fall) I hang, but to go to Cave Creek, above Phoenix, in April, I have no clear answer if I should take my hammock and pray or take my tent and save my knees. The pics I have mangaged to look at to see what types of trees/wood I could hang from is not working. Looks really snarly, few and far between, just the cactus looks promising. Anyone here experienced in the desert? Can one hang from the huge cactus there? If not don't feel bad, I'll just tent it and KNOW I'll be okay and suffer the 3# weight. I don't want creepy crawlies so tent was 1st option.
