    first night in my new Claytor

    The other weekend I spent 2 nights out in the woods in my new Claytor on some property my parents own. The first night I was by myself and had a very hard time getting to sleep. I'm not sure why, I was comfortable and all, I just couldn't get to sleep. I did sleep great once I dozed off.

    The second night we had a family campout and it started raining soon after we turned in for the night. We had multiple downpours throughout the night. The rain woke me up a few times, but overall, I slept very well. I hung my claytor using a method I saw on youtube instead of the recommended knots and did get some moisture in the hammock. It wasn't much, and I was in a bag, so I didn't get wet but I need to use the correct knots from now on.

    I've read a bunch of stuff about the stock straps stretching but I didn't experience any of that. It seems most of you change out the suspension, but I think I'm going to give it some time and see how I like it as is.

    I'll be out 4 or 5 nights over Labor Day and plan to do some more dialing in.


    The little guys in the 1st pic are my nephews Oskar and Kaleb.
