    7 nights in my Claytor JH

    Man. Once you have these things figured out, they are COMFORTABLE!

    I took my Claytor on a 7-day survival training in Michigan. I was, of course, the only one with a hammock. I am happy to say, however, that I've sent two people to Claytor's website to order hammocks after seeing how nice mine was

    I used a structural ridgeline, and it made ALL the difference. The hammock sagged nicely beneath it. The switch to using 1/4" amsteel blue for my attachment to the hammock made the cinch buckles work properly, and the whole thing was very easy to adjust.

    It took me all of a couple minutes to get myself situated each night, and then a couple more to chase around all the bugs that flew in with me

    I rode out a FIERCE thunderstorm that sent 1 tent camper fleeing to their car. I was snug as a bug, and completely dry.

    I am officially a convert. I need to figure out a good way to hang my pack. I know I could just hang it off the support strap, but I really don't want it out in the rain all night. I may do a gear hammock or something.

    This is so much freaking fun! It's a new obsession for sure.
