    There are lots of ways to do it...lots of folks just clip their backpack to the hammock support line. When I'm using a hammock without a bug net, I'll clip it onto the structural ridgeline...then I can slide it to the end of the hammock when I don't need it, and slide it down to the middle of the hammock to get stuff out of it.

    Gear hammocks work well, too. Or a Blackbird's shelves, or the Ridgerunner's saddlebags, or a peak bag.

    I will also clip the backpack to my support line if the weather is sketchy

    I am another that advocates hanging with a trashbag or pack cover. But I do like the gear hammock idea. Thats a hardcore hammocker. And Jeff, if you were in a tent, you would have literally been up the creek without a paddle.

    As an assistant Scout Master with the scouts we teach the boys about site location. It's one of the rank requirements. Always check for widowmakers and make sure your not in a low spot that will collect water if you get a hard rain are the 2 biggest. I either hang my pack on my ridgeline, or lean it against a tree with a trash bag over it.

    i watched a youtube video the hiker was on the AT and he would hang his gear on the whoopie sling on one end of the hammock getting his gear off the ground . if you are intrested in seeing his videos you can enter loner2012at in the search , that might give you a better idea
