    I guess we need to understand what we mean by 'problem'. Most of the areas I'm in don't have campsites and there's undergrowth around every tree.

    I hang high enough to be above it, and avoid trampling as much as possible. If you're not on a trail, you're always going to 'trample' to a certain extent.

    Great tips. Question: I realize "warmth" is pretty subjective but my wife and I are using our new 20 degree Incubator underquilts from Hammockgear but are still getting a little cold even in 32 to 40 degree weather. Should we have bought the zero degree Incubators?

    Some of the major concerns of the newer guys coming into this hobby, if you would oblige, is how they are not able to position their hammock in an equal manner and I must submit that they very well have to learn how to properly hang it first without giving any form of bias to either side.

    It will also be beneficial if you are able to nest your hammock so it would be a far better experience than going with something bare and plain.
