    Rod, a shout out from Denton North Carolina near the Uwharries, home to hammock campers, gold panning and Sasquatch sightings!

    I'm just north of you Rod. There are some nice hammocking opportunities not far outside LA. Just dont expect to find trees on the South or West facing slopes or elevated camps. always plan on camping in a valley, near a stream, or on the North of East facing slopes. Just got back from 2 nights in the los padres. Forecast low was 44, actual lows were 34 and 37. I've found (at least for the los padres) take 10* off the NOAA forecast low. cold air pools in the valleys where the best hammock spots are.

    Also, if you want to cut some weight and cost, I have been camping without a tarp 80% of the time around SoCal and am liking it. I only bring it now when its supposed to be cold and windy, or during the winter when rain is a possibility. I do have a Simply Light Designs catch all sack (slug tube) to protect my hammock during the day from bird poo/sap/pollen/UV
