I have been hanging with my HH for a summer now and lurking on the HF for most of that time. I put together a lot of the ideas and finally got a chance to try them in the wild.
The Mountain Valley District of the Montana Council had their fall camporee over the weekend. It was held in a field, so hanging from trees was not an option (each troop has a specific area to setup in).
I had justed swapped out the suspension on the HH with dyneema whoopie slings. I then made whoopie slings for the risers and top spanners of my tensegrity stand. Oh Man is making whoopie slings addictive. I found that folding about 16 guage insulated wire works great for pulling the lines.
I used 1.25 flexible conduit for the poles and dyneema for all runners. I used a ratcheting tie-down to apply tension to the structure. I used soft shackles for attaching the suspension to the stand (did I mention that dyneema is addicting?).
Overall, I slept great for the two nights. It got down to 33 and 31 degrees the two nights. I will need to start working on an underquilt if I plan on using it farther into fall and winter.
