    Not just critters, but run-off from heavy rain can run off (pun not intended) with your shoes. Seen it (almost) happen. KISS: tie the laces together and throw them over the suspension at the foot end.

    Spiders love ridge lines, too.

    One night I went to get up to relieve myself and realized my boots were not where I put them, I found them and put them back next to my hammock and heard something a few minutes later and it was a little raccoon trying to take off with them. I finally scared him off but had I not realized what was going on I could have lost one of my Asolo boots which would have been bad.

    With my pack underneath me (raincover on), I just put them on top and use it to hold my water bottle and other items. After reading the string, now I'm having second thoughts about some critter running away with them. On the other hand, they'd have to be pretty desperate because there stinky!

    I use a water-Resistant, breathable bag containing my camp shoes and, if not doing much distance, also a pair of "stuffits".

    At camp, the stuffits go into my hiking boots (helps them dry faster) and the camp shoes onto my feet. When its time to sleep. everything goes into the bag, except my camp shoes go into the hammock -plastic wrapped if they are wet or muddy- (who wants to sleepwalk barefoot? :-)).

    The breathable "boots" bag is suspended under the tarp. HYOH!

    if i have a chair with me the chair goes next to the hammock and shoes set on top of that... if not i usually tie a bow in the laces and throw them over the ridgeline at one end or the other... pack is usually hanging from the foot end tree... but that routine may change since a bigger tarp is on the way...

    Im still fairly new to hammocks and havnt learned all the nifty tricks yet but I just toss mine in a grocery bag and clip them to the Ridgeline. Keeps the dirt contained and the shoes away from bugs and the top of the bag is still open to let the moisture escape the shoes. The bag weighs nothing so no loss on pack weight. Another think is you could just clip them to the suspension of your hammock, just keep them in arms reach and under the tarp area.

    What advantage is there to putting the shoes in the hammock? Seems like they would resist drying and just be annoying bumping against you in the night..

    I like to hang mine from the ridgeline with a biner. Sometimes I'll put them in a plastic grocery bag if it's really humid or rainy.
    With beauty all around you, may you walk.

    If a coyote steals them, the coyote probably needs them.
