    I use Just Jeff's method for quick and easy. Just tie a bowline around the webbing on one side, then I just lash the line around the webbing on the other side. Really simple.

    The adventure continues...

    Thought I would make some more observations on my "hammock evolution". I have done a couple of late season trips using my Trek Light and various pads and tarps. Right now, I have had good luck with an Oware wide pad by itself. It seems to slip around less and even if it does, it's so wide I stay on some part of the pad. It's not very thick, and while I have not been cold (temps to near freezing), I can tell a difference in the warmth on my back. My wife just got a new sewing machine, and I think a try at an underquilt (Primaloft or similar) is coming. I also got a 10x12 Equinox tarp that works like a charm. Here is a couple of pics of my last trip out (5000 foot elevation of Ingalls Creek in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness of Washington State). My friend just bivied it under the tarp below me:





    I also got a 50' length of 3mm static climbing rope (like used for prussiks) that stands in for my tree huggers when the tree is too big or they are too far apart. Works good.

    Looks like a great trip. Synthetic quilts are super-easy. Just a pillowcase, really - slide the insulation inside and sew it up. Good luck with it, and be sure to post pics of that one, too!
