I do have a question though. I had my Hammock set up at the Ed Garvey shelter.(not in) I had a great hang but no matter what I did I ended up sleeping on my bug netting. I used my JrB Nest, No Sniveller, and blue wally world pad. I slept in my t-shirt and shorts. Woke up a bit warm I only had my legs covered. But like I said no matter what I did I ended up on my bug netting. I wasn't tossing and turning but just could not get the bug netting to stay on top. I did not sleep well as it was my first night of the trip and that part was expected. I was sleepng 30 to 45 min at a time then I would wake up and try to readjust so the bug net was on top. Any Idea?
Well, this might be a terribly naive/stupid question, but how did your hammock manage to shift up over the ridgeline? did those side tie-outs come unstaked? were they staked out at all? (I freely admit) I have only seen the HH in pictures and websites, but one comment was they rocked so much less due to staking out the sides, I'm amazed
at the thought of the whole hammock turning "upside-down"!
Puzzled on your behalf, Betsy
