I love the Hennessey "barf" effect!! Shown here in Brian's awesome pictures
I pack a lot of stuff into that little hyperlite (especially in winter), and it tends to want to follow me out unless I hang the head-end quite low. It's the one reason I want to go back to a side-entry hammock.
These are some great trip reports! My "solo hang" for the start of the Eastern Great Lakes Winter Hang will be added here soon. I have some videos that I will piece together to post with it. Wiiiiiiindy Buddy!
The Tyvek tarp wasn't so well done, there were flaws in the stress points that caused some serious damage and would have resulted in total failure if I didn't erect that deflector
. It was fun to make though!
Note that there WAS "shredded tarp" flying about as Chardpp imagined on Friday night.
The top left corner of the deflector tore out around 10pm, just after second dinner, and I had to wrap a rock in it to create a temporary tie-out.
Beaufort Rating 9: Strong Gale: 75–88 km/h Some branches break off trees, and some small trees blow over. Construction/temporary signs and barricades blow over.
