    I agree with Bradley. I'd rather sleep in the truck than on the ground.

    It worked quite well. I found it is important to set the height first, and then stake the sides out. To lift the top up I used the attached loops on the Clark together with my Dutch Biners and Whoopies, no extra rope required .
    Today I used a poly tarp to protect my hammock, on a trip I'd probably put my insulation mattress under the hammock to prevent damage.
    Once inside it is more confined than normally, but big enough and will serve me well in case of a 'no tree emergency'.
    So less room, but it works well and I am still protected from the mozzies, bull-ants and other crawlies ..
    Thanks for posting the photos.
