    This is where I keep my ruck when it is wet. I used to tie it to a tree but sometimes they are wet and dirty and get the waistband and back wet. So check out my RuckHanger. http://youtu.be/14rOZX7nrxY

    I too hang mine from the suspension, I tend to use a trash bag and wrap my pack though. Keeps it dry and off the ground.

    Amen!

    Hey, it's Sunday and the Giants are still in the playoffs (for now), so it's a holy day.

    I love my HHMonsoon. Covers the whole shebang and it has blast doors. Plus, at 23 ounces it provides the ballast I need on holy days.

    I purchased a small mesh hammock that hangs underneath me. It holds my pack and all of my gear off of the ground. I think it weighs around 3 oz.

    I'd say it depends on the type of tarp you have at the size. I use a 12' x 10' BlackCat with DIY grizbeaks and I run a loose ridgeline underneath the tarp to hang light gear from (mostly the stuffsacks and toilet kit). I find that I can tuck my pack up underneath my head or feet (depending on the prevailing wind) and haven't had a problem getting things wet. If the weather's looking bad, I'd pack the bag up with all of the loose gear and put on the rain cover. In dry or slightly moist weather, you can get away with hanging it from a tree and again using the raincover.

    i woke up to a skunk trying to drag my pack off in Glencliff, NH. have hung it off suspension since or under my feet in winter.
    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.

    In good weather I hang my ruck from the tree strap. Keeps it out of the animals reach. If raining it goes under the tarp. In a plastic bag if heavy rain. Seems to work well so far.
