    Well...She is definitely NOT perfect yet if she is still sleeping on the ground.

    What kind of experience have you had with strangers in the wild?

    Probably not that well after I messed them up in response to the scare on the trail!

    I also told him that he'd 'scared seven shades out of me! since I thought this place was deserted'
    He said he was 'surprised you didn't seen more people about as this place was very popular' as he walked away despondant he said 'it's where men go to meet men'.
    What was that line about being surprised at the interesting places you can put a hammock up?

    Oh, I see! I actually thought you might have meant something like that! Guess we'll have to be careful about where we stealth!

    Well, other than the 3 feet from the ground part, I'd just tell my dog to quit walking so close. We hike late like that lots in the Summer, including on the FHT last week. Finished past first light two different nights.
