    OP is also a really good writer

    Nothing like hanging when it's wild out. If a trip isn't challenging, you may as well stay sitting in your armchair at home.

    You ask if you're a bit crazy for wanting to hammock in a storm? Of course you are. But then, aren't we all? A couple of good quotes:

    "The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane."

    "If we weren't all crazy, we would go insane."

    "The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four Americans is suffering from some form of mental illness. Think of your three best friends. If they are okay, then it's you."

    It is not just hammocks. There is always a feeling of well being when snugged up warm and dry inside any shelter that lets you see, hear and feel mother nature doing a gear test. ;-)

    Just a wee bit. Mainly just a bit of mist. My quilt has a Pertex Quantum top so no worries there. UQ had more moisture but nothing serious. I shook it off, let it air out later and it was ready for more. 👌
    The beauty of sunsets,
    The wind in the pines,
    The mountains give these and more...
    Peace of mind.

    Nothing makes you feel more alive that watching snow from your tarp, or hearing a tree come down at 3am

    Fair weather camping, meh!
