    Both. It's weird but it depends on the hammock I'm in. Each hammock has its own personality and wants to be slept in a certain direction. Who am I to argue?

    Thanks Karla! I plan to keep the posting in place another week or so, but it seems pretty clear that this type of full hammock shelter kit will only appeal to a very specific audience.

    Whatever secondary approach you take, your first step should be to remove as much of the sap as possible first. With fabric, the more the sap has hardened, usually the easier it is to scrape off. If...
