    It's just practice. My first few nights on the AT were weird and I was conscious of every sound and whisper of wind. By the end of it you don't pay even notice the breeze

    The first time I ever used a hammock/tarp/TQ/UQ/everything was in the middle of a day-long downpour on my first day hiking the Appalachian Trail. If I muddled my way through, you'll be fine!

    Wow! These look amazing! Looks so much easier than having a CRL for the tarp, and attaching them to the guylines looks like a breeze! Definitely ordering these!
