I am planning to hike the AT this year. Doing it the hammock way was a part of my plan even though I have yet to sleep in my Speer hammock. This week I learned that my Standard Poodle, Fleur, will have to be with me instead of where I had arrangements for her to be. I am adjusting. Doing it with my hammock is still important to me. Descending from my elevated "bed," I picture tarp, then hammock, then Fleur connected to me with her 6-foot leash, then some sort of padding for her to sleep upon. As you read this, does your hair stand on end? Please advise. Thanks.
