    That's how I use it most of the time. I rig it with prussiks so I just pull my hiking poles and zip the line to close it up from underneath.

    Just to touch on one issue you asked about. I'm a wiggle worm but do just fine in a hammock. I still toss and turn and usually end up on my side but it's still WAY more comfortable than a tent.

    Dutch is good on shipping quick, so is Paul at AHE if he knows you have a deadline. With two weeks, I'm guessing most of the vendors would hook you up if you call.

    Any hangers in Portland?

    I'd probably prefer a short hike and a lake. My 12 y/o has some physical issues so anything difficult is probably out. As for driving, probably want to stay within a couple hours drive.

    Woot offers the Yukon Outfitters every month or so it seems. However, even my 5'6 teen daughter thinks it's too short. Maybe if she'd never tried anything else.
