    Cakes, I thought Monteban told me you were already doing this with the pole mod; but yes there is one stake where you can reach it without leaving the hammock (placement important so you dont catch a foot on a 3am nature call.
    The reason for me doing this is Shug-why you ask, because I was always impressed when he cooks from bed e.g. the hammock, so adding to what you can do without leaving the downy goodness.
    Also dont know if you notice but I was wearing one of those down t-shirts, yet another Shug influence.
    Veto-65, the music turned out to be hmmmm at best with some shining spots here and there, one group named Ralph had a stellar mandolin player and the acoustic players in the tent made it all worth while-regardless support live music where ever you are.
    Now speaking of adjustments while in repose wasn't it Dave in WVa who could adjust his whole hammock while lying in it?

    Yes, Montalban and I did discuss it but only in theory. I did not know how well it would work with my Tarp Tensioners. I suppose you don't use them at full extension when using this mod. And I also figured I'd trip on it in the dark.

    Having my coffee while still wrapped in down is a standard now for me. And I haven't burned myself with hot coffee anymore.

    Where do you get those shirts, is it a Black Rock product? My MontBell Inner Jacket serves as my extra insulation when I'm not using it as a pillow in it's little stuff sack.
