I bought a claytor jungle hammock about a year ago, and have been using it during a couple of camping trips, however next month I'm headed out for a Simpson desert trip (Middle of Aus) for a couple of weeks.
There won't be any trees out there, but I reckon I'd rather try string it up between either some poles or roof racks/bull bars of the 4wd's. The alternative is buying a swag (although I'd prefer to hang so I'll probably assemble something similar to that treeless-pole setup and take that along)
A couple of questions about improving my current setup;
Previously I've been using a sleeping bag inside the hammock, however this gets crushed and doesn't proved much bottom insulation, so now I'm looking at underquilts. Is a KAQ Potomac a good size for my Claytor JH? should I be looking at the alternatives that KAQ offer?
I've ordered 1 HH snake skin (#4), for the hammock, will another #4 be suitable for the tarp, or should I go DIY?
Do snake skins work well with underquilts as well?
When using an underquilt are standard blankets adequate? or should I also be looking at topquilts or modifying a sleeping bag?
