Well......It was an interesting night.
I got in my hammock at around 11:00pm, and the wind here in western NC was just a howling then. The weather people said 60-70mph gusts were expected! I heard the calling!
I have my set-up hooked to a post on my deck and the other end to a big Hickory tree just off the deck. Needless to say, I was a bit nervous.
At around 1:00am I heard my tarp really flapping in the wind so I peeked my head out and saw that it had come loose from the deck. I had previously bought a 12 X 16 HD tarp, and put it over the ridgeline and brought it all the way to the deck and attached it, creating a hut.
I got out and reattached it and climbed back in just as this monster blast came. It actually caused me to flinch with my arms raising over my head!
After I came to grips to either lay there in fear or enjoy this evening in the hammock rollercoaster I was O.K. So I decided to enjoy it. I went up & down in the sway and really did have fun.
Throw caution to the wind, and decide to have some fun!
