    I absolutely love the Albert Pike area of Ouatchita NF. There is nothing better than setting up my hammock on the banks of that cool river and taking a nap on a hot day!

    I use a 3/4 length underquilt, and depend of the foot box from my top quilt to keep my feet warm. I ordered my top quilt long, and that combo works for me. I don't usually hang in the winter though.

    I broke a Dutch clip once, but I know what went wrong. I stretched my hammock between two trees that were too far apart, and did not hang at the proper angle. I knew it wasn't ideal, but I tried it...
