    Unless it sags so low it's in your face, just let it go. You're sure your set up is good, hammock lines nice and tight, then it ain't a thang. If you really just can't stand it, something in your...

    Thanks for the responses. I kind of like the cam idea myself. I'll talk to some of the local climbers and see if I can pick up some on the cheap. Once I get enough trials in to form some opinions,...

    Rock Hang

    Being in San Diego, one of my favorite camping areas is Joshua Tree NP. The bad thing about J-Tree is no trees - back to the tent thing. I've considered using cams or plugs and trying to hang from...

    also ordered the hex fly - seemed to be enough to cover me and the Harley if I don't bring it down tight. Should be good just to keep the sap and dew off. Got a plastic sheet to cover the bike if...
