    Talking My first hang - setup

    I finally got around to setting up my SBPro this evening for a test run. I may try to sleep in it tonight if the weather is cool. Supposed to get down to the mid 50's!



    Still playing around with sag and a ridgeline. Need to get a few more bits of extra rope to play with...



    And I need to get some more line for the tarp.

    Looks good! I'm glad for the cool down too. Didn't realize it was supposed to get that cool, but I'm glad to see it!

    Thanks! I'm very happy with the setup so far. Need to get some more rope - maybe a small pillow/stuff sack. And figure out what I'm going to do with all my gear when sleeping... I think I can stuff most of it in my motorcycle bags, and I have a large dry bag which I think I can hang under the tarp.

    Tarp is from Big Rock Outfitters. 10x10 (bigrockoutfitters.com)

    All in all I'm very happy - came in under my $100 budget!!

    Looks like a good setup, virtually Identical to mine and my sons. You might want to eventually pick up a few aluminum stakes to use staking out the trap. Have a great night.

    I just picked up some aluminum gutter spikes for stakes. They are 7" long and quite light. They bend kind of easy but that works both ways... they are also easy to bend back. At 29 cents a peice I can afford to bend up a few and have some extras.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.
