Last night just before going to sleep (in my hammock naturally), I had a thought (I do that sometimes): My hanging ropes are literally covered in sweat from my hands, from what I understand Porcupines LOVE salt & will eat anything with salt on (or near) it. Has anyone while in Porcupine territory, had an ďissueĒ with the little darlins chewing through your support system?
Seems that it may indeed be an issue to think about, but I donít have any ideas as to how to prevent it. I imagined that you would be lying there, sound asleep, when: SNAP, THUD as they cut through your line & you fall to the ground. I know my girls (rats) can chew thru a nylon shoe string held tight in one bite, that is ONE bite, & my largest one weighs in at only 1 Lb. Porcupines are MUCH larger.
Porcupines also live in trees, the things we usually hang from.
I donít have an answer to this. Iím not going to stop hanging because of it! Donít even know if it is a real or imagined problem.
When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, youíre home.
PAIN is INEVITABLE. MISERY is OPTIONAL.
