Been a lurker for a little while. First time poster...
Pretty much all the camping I do is in the BWCA. 3 years ago, I was in the BWCA with the Mrs. and a friend of hers. They were sharing a 2 man tent. I was in a solo tent. I always bring a Byer Traveller Lite hammock just for lounging around camp.
It was the end of May, temps in the low 60s with a breeze. I was in the hammock (in the shade) and I got chilled. I grabbed my sleeping bag (Big Agnes with a pad in the sleeve) and put it in the hammock to lie on top of it. It was super comfy and I decided to sleep there that night. Weather was good, and it was too early in the season for bugs. I didn't have a bug net or a tarp over or anything and it was awesome. I actually "slept in" for the first time while camping. Only reason I got up when I did was the ladies were whining for coffee. And since they're worthless when it comes to camping (HA!), I had to get up to get the stove going for them. I vowed to never sleep on the ground again.
Since then I've been using the hammock for sleeping. I string a blue hardware store cheapo tarp over it. Still don't have any bug net. I tend to go either during the early or late season anyway.
BUT - this year I have a mid-June trip planned to Seagull Lake in the B-dub. So I got to hunting around to find a bug net at least, if not a more practical system. The tarp is heavy and bulky to pack. The hammock is a little on the short side for me (I'm 6'2", 200 lbs.).
After looking around on the web, I found you guys, and here I am.
