I'm new & still learning but really enjoying it.
I may have introduced myself already but this time I have an experience to share.
I live in the mid Georgia area and spend a lot of time in the north Georgia mountains.
This past summer I spent a few days camping up there (Desoto Falls) and since my daughter was coming for a night or 2 I pitched a tent next to my hammock as well.
As it happened we had a really bad thunderstorm one night just as we were returning from one of our ramblings.
Wind, lightning & torrential rains. We jumped out of the truck and ducked into the tent. Since it was so bad I elected to just stay there for the night.
I literally slept in a puddle of water. She was on a couple of thermarests so she was a little better. Pearl (dog) was soaked...everything was dripping wet.
I went out in the morning to find the ONLY thing dry in the woods was my hammock under my Kelty tarp.
If only I had stayed there!
