    I have one simple rule with sheepskin seat pads: after a season of riding, do not use as a pillow.

    I do not know what you guys are doing to your sheepskins. I've had this one for 5 years and it doesn't smell or anything.

    Sure if it gets wet you have to dry it and it holds water, but if it's raining, I have waterproof gear on. I even washed it once with a little Dr B's peppermint castile soap. Shook it out, toweled it off and hung it to dry. Like new.

    I guess YBMV. (your butt may vary)

    LOL. +1. I have made the mistake of grabbing my stuff sack for wash clothes as a pillow rather than my fresh(er) clothes. Also, hanging boots at the head end of the ridgeline is not a good idea, especially if there is dog poo around. And, ride pants work best as sleep pads at the FOOT end of the hammock, IMO.

    BTW- There is a recent and timely thread re: getting rid of smells in a quilt:

    http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=46618

    Anyone try the listed solutions for de-stinking a helmet or a ride suit?

    (1) dryer sheets or dryer bars
    (2) Scent Killer dryer sheets.
    (3) Fabreeze (I did this for summer, but it stays too wet for winter use)
    (4) Atmosklear (???)

    Also, where and how do you hang your helmet at night? What is the best way to let it dry out, but keep it bugs out (including the flying type)? I thought about using a bag made out of no-seeum netting, but I was worried it wouldscratch my face-shield.

    I'm not a fan at all of covering odors with other odors, that is I don't like dryer sheets or sprays. Sweet odors attract critters. I have used this kind of bag of odor absorbing volcanic stone and it works pretty well on my helmet.

    For gear or helmet I like to put it out exposed to bright sun for as long as you can. It really works wonders.

    I have lock boxes on my bike for storage but a no-seeum bag wouldn't scratch your shield. Should work great.

    weird1 - Nice H & h pic. What could be prettier than a Honda and a hammock together???


    (I don't have a Honda anymore, moved up in cc's. But my first/learner bike was a CRF230). One should never let their first love go, wish i had her back now.

    I'll second the nice tarp setup. Apparently, I need a bigger tarp

    As for riding gear odors, I machine wash the clothes and helmet padding with Odo-ban and tech-wash. Odo-ban leaves it's own fragrance for a day or two but also kills everything (bacteria/viruses/fungi)

    Looks like they also have a product called "Lethal Hunting" (more powerful than their other product, "Maim and Release") .
