I am preparing to start my first summer season as a hammock camper. I live in Oregon where the ground gets so saturated with water that we hear of trees falling over all winter. I was wondering whether it would be a good idea to run up into the Cascades as soon as the snow melts to try out my new camping shelter. Would the trees hold up with a hammock tied to them just after snow melt?
Does anybody have any test to determine just how saturated is too saturated?
Has anybody ever gone hammock camping in the early spring on really wet ground in the Cascades?
