Dale Gribble: I'm thinking, "new hammock." For me, laying and swaying in a hammock is like a steady morphine drip without the risk of renal failure.
Randy : yea but just remember yer roots and where ya come from....you got Hennessy in yer blood son......
Nice work! I've got a couple of DIY sil ponchos that are just the right size for that - I may add some perimeter shock cords. The 3/32" shock cord from Questoutfitters will fit their minitoggles - very tiny.
Do you carry a towel? I didn't on one trip, and I got caught in a fierce rainstorm, so I stopped and put up my tarp and hammock to wait it out. Then I realized that I was so wet I didn't want to get into my hammock. I used a shirt to dry myself off, but since then I carry a super-absorbent towel - actually a piece of "Zorb" fabric (used in diapers). I can also use it to dry my tarp when I pack it up in the morning. It would be handy to make sure your poncho isn't too wet when you hang it under your hammock.
On towels, I usually carry just a bandana. I do have some MSR pack towels that I have cut down. Some people carry a cut down synthetic chamois or a small sponge for mopping tarp condensation.
If it is raining, I can put up my tarp, then the hammock, removing my poncho last and it would go on wet side out anyway. I wouldn't snug it up tight until it dried a bit. Silnylon will shed a lot of water by giving it a good shake too.
i have a driducks poncho i use as a undercover in the winter to boost my UQ's rating and protect it from blowing snow .... it's a very good multi use item to have .... i like the Sil one you have...i might have to make one out of Cuben
It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold
