    The BIAS camper XL double layer is perfect for you, but I really really believe you would be much happier with two hammocks close together. Even sharing with a small child is hell on earth. Good luck.

    I was at Cat lake last may. It's just north of Squamish and drive in. Lots of hang spots, bear bags, out houses and close enough to town to go for pancake mix if you forget it.

    Best stakes for frozen ground

    Best way to drive stakes into frozen ground, is to catch an airplane to somewhere warm! I have the gear for deep cold but not the desire. Hawaii is nice this time of year. Aozzie land. New Zealand.

    I have my whole setup in a dry bag used like a bishop bag. My setup time is less than a minute, but I rarely use a trap. If I need the tarp it adds a minute or two.

    What is your Hammock Index?

    I think I'm cheating. I bought ten hammocks at the grand opening of target in Canada. They are for gifts. So that makes my H.I 14. But I claim 4, two ENO DN, a BIAS camper, and a DD jungle.
