I have the pleasure of announcing that I slept in my hammock Friday night (Hennessey) and last night Warbonnett Traveler.
Why is that an accomplishment? I haven't slept in my hammocks since last year October . I always seemed to sleep when it's cold and since I do not have an adequate under-quilt it wasn't a pleasant experience.
I always seemed to miss sleeping in the summer when it's warm. Well I actually did it these past two nights. I set up the Traveler last night at 2 am and had to hotfoot it because it started to rain.
Thanks to the forum for the techniques that I learned because it helped me to set up quickly. I used the Marlin spike hitch on my stakes. I hung my tarp under the tarp line using prussic knots from which I hung a small caribiner and I had my trusty Dutch clips.
I still have the original equipment on my Hennessey but I utilized Marlin Spike hitches to connect it to the trees.
Will I sleep again tonight in my hammock? I don't know. It was fun though
