Without thinking I left the shock cord open and laying on the ground. When I came back to sleep there was a very large wolf spider on my top quilt.
I deftly removed him and a leaf hopper and all was well for the rest of the night. From now on I close up the shock cord and make sure it's over my ground cloth so I don't corral any more buggies. I sure glad I saw him instead of sleeping with him.
here is my solution to the open bugnet while I am not in it...just fold it up over the ridgeline. this closes off the opening and keeps it up off the ground. i wasn't sure the shockcord would close tight enough to keep things out while I wasn't in there.
