    I'll say. Laid out all our gear to air out last week. 20* HG Econ and Incubator, 20* Wooki, 10* EE Revelation, 15* SG insulated hammock. I should've taken a picture, but the SG insulated hammock just...

    That's what I did last weekend. Packed them in with the tarp instead of with the hammock. Used my camp towel to dry off the buckles and continuous loop as much as possible.

    You'll like it. I'll echo what hutzelbein said. XLC requires flipping the bugnet to reverse the lay, so more simple to just pick a lie after experimenting and stick with it. Sounds like you did that....

    May be a silly question, but when pitching your tarp low, do you match the slope of your hammock ridgeline? I guess if doing that, way better to have head end on downhill side of camp.

    It's definitely a pretty area, though I was surprised by how much of the trail was away from the river when I went. Glad you got to get out and enjoy it.
