After receiving my new tarp I decided to try outdoor hang because relatively warm night had been in forecast and possible rain. In the late evening cycled out of capital city of Latvia Riga to near the Jurmala, ~15 kilometers from my home.
Bought in local outdoorshop High Peak stakes similar to MSR Groundhogs, Didn't find 25mm straps, gone with 20 mm ones, first setting up my tarp= success
Let's set up the my old hammock itself with those straps and tied hammock loops with two half hitches, let's climb in the hammock...THUD! Holy crap, those straps are slippery. Tying second try with threee half hitches, probably succes! Slept great and without the dreaded CBS with only the sleeping bag.
Voke one time in the night, wow, what a warm night for Latvia tonight. Temperature not fallen below 15 degrees celsius! Did find myself in the morning that my butt dragging on the ground,crap, they gave me strechy straps.
Tarp itself stayed nice and taut!
This small trip gone relatively succesful, only need to remake suspension for hammock itself.
Had been alone in the woods and wow, what a nice morning!
Next thing I know I will buy, this must be bugnet because from time to time those long nosed insect decided to eat me for the breakfest.
