    haha, good point .. but i would try to not hang from a tree with that sticky resin on.. leaving the strap outside will help protect the hammock but will stick the inside of your backpack..

    and will definitly throw that old poly tarp away for a new lightweight one.

    The fix - a plastic grocery bag. Throw it when you get home, put the straps in a Tecnu bath (Tecnu washes away poison oak oil and sap equally well), store in a new bag when dry.

    Not so much of a process, as if you go where there is a lot of poison oak/ivy and need to get the oil gone, your gaiters, shoes, pants, socks, shirt (if long sleeved), gloves, trekking poles, and dog all need to be washed or you risk secondary exposure.

    And some trips in spring when the sap's running like crazy, I'm also getting the stuff off the tarp and my backpack. We walked one trail and ended up with sap all over us as it was dropping out of this one pine tree.
