I'm now a den leader in my son's pack. I've been reading up on the rules of camping with cubs and so far I'm a little confused about hammock use. Some seem to think they don't satisfy the "privacy" rules while others believe they do. I'm going to assume it's up to each pack to figure out what works until there's some kind of problem. Guidance seems to be a little thin, at least in our area.
I am an ASM and previous SM. I have a homemade hammock sock using Just Jeff's directions I pull up and then change cloths laying in my hammock. Nobody can see me. If I leave the sock at home I will drop the tarp sides down so I can't be seen. It's a 10 X10. I can even angle the ends in like doors if needed. I wouldn't change while the tarp is in porch mode though!
