FYI - ever since Katrina, the east end of Horn Island lost most of it's trees (they were dying off anyway). So, I took my tent and not my hammock.
HATED IT! I roasted every night. And with both doors open and the 17 mph wind blowing across the sand, my tent and I got covered.
Next time, I WILL take my new hammock stands (I may do a video on how to make the four piece V stand from tubing soon) to set up in the dunes. The hammock would have been much cooler and off the blowing sand.
