    Yes the pictures of my rig was taken at camp Akela Cannon falls MN, on a scouting trip. This was the first time I used my hammock and homemade stand outdoors. My first year at camp had me on a lumpy cot in a tent. I told myself never again will I sleep on a cot or in a tent and thus a hanger was born.

    I would love to continue my Hanging year round has anyone seen a good DIY
    peapod or a slip over shelter?
