I always thought it would be fun to try to sleep out in a hammock in the back country. I looked up a few you tube videos on hammock camping and you know who I found! "Whoooo Buddy." Thanks for all the great info Shug.
Since then, I picked up a few of the Yukon hammocks on Woot for $20, made some DIY bugnets (Thanks Fronkey!), made some DIY whoopies (amsteel and toggles from simply light), and got an Eno Profly new from an REI garage sale for $20 bucks.
Now I am looking into making or getting a better tarp bc the profly seems small for one, and I think it might be nice to have door options for the colder season coming up. My big concern at the moment is making or getting an inexpensive underquilt. I am currently using a pad, but I would love to have the coziness of an underquilt without the squirmy nightmare of the pad.
