(Gotta set it up wherever I can, even if it's 15 feet from a busy street!)
So I finally just got my whole set up in. My 2 carabiners and 4 rappel rings came in today! Woo! It makes set up a complete breeze. If anyone has the HH or a similar type of suspension, I would certainly recommend it.
So, my whole setup consists of a HH Expedition Asym Classic, Walmart blue CCF pad, default tarp, Marmot Sawtooth 15* bag, and a couple of tent stakes.
Now, 2 things:
1.) I'm considering not even getting a pillow, is this wise?
I had just woken up to the mailman delivering my package of biners/rings and went outside immediately to set it up. Once inside I was sleeping in about 5 minutes. With the elevation towards my head end, I just don't think I'd need a pillow, I was more than comfortable.
2.) When going on my thru, I'm debating on carrying only 2 stakes, just for the tarp. What do you think?
I would actually consider myself to be the complete opposite of claustrophobic, I really enjoy being in small spaces. This being said, I don't know if I'll even want to stake out my hammock like that again. It also seems like if I don't stake out the hammock that the CCF pad will wrap around me even more, which I like.
Just give me some feedback guys. I'd love to hear your words of wisdom!
