I am going on a rafting trip on the Middle Fork Salmon River next June. Weight will not be a big issue since the gear will not have to be packed in, like I did in the Grand Canyon. I am pleased with ease and speed of my tarp setups for both hammocks. However, it seems like breaking down and stuffing the UQ/TQ, and then re-attaching them, is a little time consuming. I will be repeating the process for 6 nights.
Since everything will be going into dry bags, I am considering leaving the UQ/TQ, in/on the hammock and reefing it along with the tarp. If the weather is iffy, I may just tie it up and keep the tarp seperate, to be able to establish a shelter more quickly. Then stuff everything as a single unit into a dry bag as opposed to several smaller stuff sacks.
Any comments or ideas are appreciated.
