    I just loop the UQ suspension around the gathered ends of the hammock
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    I am new to his under quilt thing. I am thinking there has to be a learning curve.

    I do it the way Shug shows in his video by laying it in the hammock while hooking it up - on account of that's how I started doing it after watchin' his video.

    In the warmer months I can just use reflectix and a fleece bag liner on account of livin' in coastal SC.

    Just get out there and do it!

    I like to go solo - off trail - immerse myself in the area - explore - eat really well - and make it back home.

    Another suggestion would be to use the Dutch quilt hangers they work great

    I use the Dutch Quilt hangers when I have the bug net pulled back (not used)...but haven't trusted them over the bug net for fear it would rip the fabric (?).

    I have some Dutch quilt hooks to try - I'm hoping those are the solution.
