    thanks Cannibal, I had a different idea going until I saw the pics ...
    so what's that pole for at the campsite?
    It can't be for a food hang?
    it would be at the perfect height to munch on!
    a light pole maybe?

    I assume it's for a Coleman lantern or the like. Personally, it looks like a great place to hang a gravity filter to me.

    That campground was technically "closed" when we used it. We had permission from the folks in charge, so we were legal. However, it is setup primarily for family car-camping. Hence, the lamppost.

    here's my modes of travel for when I'd use the "gone in 60 seconds" mode, canoe, kayak and hiking (no photo)

    Put Dutch clips on the ends of the WBBB Webbing suspension.
    Place the tarp in skins with something like dutch flyz on the tie outs.

    If you wanted to do all in one you could do like the stock Hennessy tarp and have prusik knots on the suspension lines to clip the tarp to, but that can lead to a saggy tarp. Maybe if they were shock cord prusiks it would self tension. Then you could run the Lazy Slug Tube over the entire getup if its dry or remove the tarp and place in its own stuff sack if its wet.

    Just some initial thoughts.

    dunno about 60 sec. but the LST makes buggin'out "lickidy-split".
    (that's my rig in photo)

    Just make sure the whole setup doesn't get to bulky, not that it all doesn't fit through your kayaks hatches. (some hatches are quite small, so normally many small bags instead of one big thing).

    Have you seen Dutch's Bridge back pack? His hammock is his back pack, and his back pack is his hammock. May take a little more than 60 seconds to pack, but it's all done at once.

    I needed to do the same thing for rafting. I have used this setup for my last two river trips. I think the Drysil bags are 25L. I leave the bottom quilt attached to the hammock, with the top quilts and pillow inside. I stuff it from one end to the other, into a dry bag. There's really no way to incorperate the tarp into the same bag with the down because it always seems to be damp, whether from rain or just a heavy dew.

    I did DIY that KnuPak, just a regular old style external aluminum frame backpack with top bar bolted across the top (in these case a windsurfing boom). I had to adjust the height to fit me just right but it's almost at the top of the frame with maybe an inch to spare. I'm about to replace it with one of the newer frames that are now available with hopes of a better fit, though with this I've done some serious trippin' covering miles and miles, and more miles of portaging ..... (the extended Whitney Loop in the Adirondacks, twice. Also the NFCT a bunch of times).

    I hear that! for the kayak I might be only to go in the summer where I can use less insulation for everything, hence smaller package. That will take some trial and error.
