    I was just wondering about this for northern MI. Whole state has been very wet, so I assumed the same. Bummer compared to last year.

    I like Linlocs as an option, since they're pretty specific requiring the right kind of line and size. And there's not really options to use them other ways unless you get creative. The "v" can also...

    I agree but the point is, the world of hammocks has spread like wildfire. Even all over ads...beer, clothing, the local chamber, travel, you name it.

    Since 2012 I've watched this blow up. At least in IN and MI I just don't see many tents when I'm out. If I do, there is ALWAYS at least one hammock in the party. Even if it's just for a day-lounger....

    Brave time to go...anywhere really! Every time I did the loop I saw 9/10 camps using hammocks. Hanging right on the trail, right on the water, basically anywhere camp is prohibited.

    Doing it over again, I think I would too. I don't use my BB much since I typically camp when bugs are not an issue. But when I do get out for the warmer trips, that shelf is always appreciated.

    You'll eventually find out the minimum amount that works for you. I started with 8', but found I only used 2-3' most times. 6' for porch mode. So I eventually cut them on all my tarps to 6'.
