    Widerstand,
    I see you're big into trains? ...... lets see some of your hangs while riding the rails!

    back when I was in the usaf and was aircrew in a c130 herc I'd tie up my hammock across the back ramp on long missions (and short ones). wish I had some photos of that ......

    I have an ENO double that gets a fair amount of use, outside of swapping out suspension (whoopie slings for me) and adding a ridge line I don't think they need much modding. One of the advantages is how small and light it is. Maybe a pad sleeve if you use a pad. Don't remember seeing anyone that has added one though.

    The Navy's P3's use to have a hammock in the tail section. Pretty sure I still have a photo of a skinner Hawk-eye in one ... Need to find that

    Well yeah! Most y'all probably don't know this but a growing number of train riders are getting those cheap net hammocks cause the walls of boxcars have tie-down points that are perfect for a hammock and doing so gets you up off that cold unforgiving steel.

    I was searching online for a better hammock to use when train hopping, found Shugs videos, and here I am.

    I also hike and stuff but trains are number one for me.
    Some of my freight hopping adventures on film over at my YouTube Channel... Oh and there is other stuff there as well!

    I have a friend that's a former Ringling Bros. circus clown and lived on the train for years! I went to visit a few times .... oh boy is that an interesting lifestyle, for sure!

    I have a new TrekLight Double in camo. Purchased a WarBonnet hammock ridgeline/webbing suspension kit from Opie (who didn't need it), removed the OEM suspension system from the TL (rope and carabiner system), and installed the WB suspension.

    I now have a TL Dbl, with a structural ridgeline, and adjustable webbing suspension system.

    Wow, I didn't know that train hopping was still a common practice. I think that's fantastic....

    Regarding the OP, I think there are only a few mods that an ENO really needs. One is a change to a low bulk adjustable suspension (whoopie sling or UCR) and the other is a structural ridgeline. Both are easy and quick mods. Outside of that, ENO's are very straightforward and comfortable hammocks for almost any situation.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    A certain pilot I know used that same hammock to cradle a floor clock he bought in Spain and smuggled back home! Rank has privaliages!

    I mentioned that to him years after the fact and he just smiled and said he was sure the crew would have fragged him over the Atlantic for hogging the hammock!

    I don't want to stray to far from the topic at hand here of Eno Mods but here are some photos of a not to safe hammock setup in a suicide well-car.
