Going to be doing a 16 day kayaking trip thru the grand canyon this summer. Here is the catch, its self support, meaning I can only bring what I can fit in my kayak for 277 miles down the Colorado river. We will have no raft support.
My main shelter will be a Fly Creek Fly/Footprint which I hope to never have to use as sleeping under the stars is what most people do on summer trips. Its going to be HOT and obviously there are no trees but a few of us have kicked around the idea and experimented with hanging between two boulders. I will have 75' of rope and a couple of assorted pieces of webbing in my rescue kit that could be used for anchor points. A good number of the campsites are near or next to some pretty large boulders. Since its going to be so hot I think it would be worth it If I could get even one or two nights in a hammock. Also it would be great for chilling out during the day when we are not paddling. Another issue is environmental impact as I certainly dont want to harm or damage this beautiful place. Any thoughts on this?
My next question would be whats the lightest hammock that would hold up a 215 pounder. I dont really want to take my WBBB as its a bit heavy being the DL 1.7 and I really dont want to subject it to that kind of abuse.
