I introduced myself last week on the "new guy forum", and thank you so much for the welcomes from the Oregon folks. I have two questions, one about the upcoming winter hang and one embarrassing newbie question.
First, I have family visiting starting Saturday the 19th through the weekend (perfect timing, no?). I very much want to attend the hang to meet people and see different setups, but if I can it will be only for Friday night until about noon on Saturday. The question I have is how many people who are going will be there from at least Friday on? And what time will people be arriving on Friday? I'm supposed to be working until 4 on Friday and I work about an hour away from Frog Lake, so if I work I'll be arriving in the dark. Not ideal, I know. I may take the day off (mental health day
And now the embarrassing newbie question. I have a Hennessey Explorer Ultralight hammock. I believe the tarp that comes with it is 30D silnylon. It has a somewhat shiny side and a duller side. Here's the question: which side faces the sky and which side faces the hammock? Does it matter? From what I've read on the forums and elsewhere, silnylon is supposed to look the same on both sides, but mine definitely does not. Any insight would be appreciated.
One last thing. I live in Portland and work in Happy Valley and drive a Jeep Grand Cherokee 4wd with a snowpark pass. If anyone wants a ride up and I'm convenient to them, feel invited. I can fit three more.
Thanks for reading my novel : )
