    Just like the movie Beerfest, the webbing might benefit from the same treatment before trying again. Rain water might be softer than tap water. Good luck!

    Great trick. Could've really used this when hunkered down through a torrential downpour near Mammoth Cave National Park during a long road trip. That night's dinner was terribly dreary.

    Maybe I can do the one tree method with my cargo rack though. However, a better comfortable solution for rest stops would be great though.

    The 11' tarp is great for 11' hammocks. Unless you have a bridge hammock, the 13' seems to be a luxury winter tarp if you can even find trees that far apart.
