I've been soloing for decades..no problems yet-fingers crossed.
Def. stealth but on last weeks stealth something scared me--first for a scare in a long long time. Evidently I picked a spot to hang that was eitthe the bedding area or darned close to it-got the hammock up and walked several yards away to relieve my bladder and I heard a huge SNORT-I jumped! Just a deer but it startled me. Long days, many miles, etc. can make you more sensitive.
Sterpipen. Hmmm, requires batteries doesn't it. A small bottle of generic chlorox has done me well for years-either that or I'm already colonized with the nasties.
