    Yep I do the same... we don't have scorpions here, but had a large fat slug in one of mine this summer... So I always shake them out before putting them on.

    I do what Crash does when I use the WBBB and I do what Rug does when I use the HH. I used to just leave everything on the ground, but after something ate part of my pack, a fair bit of it, I now store my shoes at the foot end ridgeline and my pack on the head end ridgeline. I still leave my two water bottles on the ground.

    I figure they want get eaten or taken away. Handy for a middle of the night drink too. By putting a carbiner through the heel loops, I can hang the shoes from the heel end, pointing down. This way, the shoes hang down and I face the bottom of the shoe (the dirty part) away from the hammock and quilt.

    Thanks for asking that question, Ibdgolfer, itís very interesting!

    Thanks to everyone that replied. While at summer camp with our troop I was sleeping in a hammock and that is when I decided to start hanging my shoes over the ridge line. Being that there mice and snakes in the area I didn't feel like taking a chance with finding either one in a shoe. We are talking about an AT section hike in October with our crew and thought I would asked the experts to see if I was off base on what I did. I had searched but didn't find a thread on this subject so figured I'd start one.

    I typically hang my shoes on my tarp ridgeline and for middle of the night bladder relieving trips I have a pair of insole flipflops that I made out of a pair of old running shoe insoles and 550 cord. Work great as a camp shoe and since they are a flipflop I don't need to check them for bugs or critters before I put them on also they are extremely lightweight, 2 oz for the pair!
