Stupid question no. 555 from NJ Newbie. So it's raining cats and dogs in NJ and I decided to see how hard it is to hang hammock and tarp during a hard rain. Hanging the tarp? Easy. I have snakeskins so I just laid it out on the ground, tied off one end then the other and the tarp was up in no time.
Hanging the hammock? Well, that part baffles me. How do you keep the hammock off the wet ground? I thunk and thunk and couldn't figure it out. Finally, I just attached one whoopie to tree strap while hammock temporarily laid on ground, then went to other end and got hammock off of ground. After a few adjustments to the whoopies I had the hammock properly positioned under the tarp, and it didn't get too wet. However, I'll bet that someone has figured out a technique to achieve no-wet. What am I missing?
