He'll use army satellites to find the perfect spaced trees in every campground he plans to ever use.
Just wait till the Koreans see this thing hung up in down town Yongsan... LOL
Ha! I ended up face down once on the ground after trying to get into my Hennesy the first time. I like them for lots of reasons, though, even so. I keep mine nice and tight, which seems to prevent problems with both comfort and egress.
Finally hanging. Lame, in the yard, but I've been dying to try it out. Comfy, feel sleepy!
I'm sleeping in mine again tonight too Ed! When it is 87 degrees at bedtime, it sure is a lot cooler outside in a hammock than in a stuffy house. However last night the moon was so bright, I found myself wishing someone would turn it off so I could sleep, LOL!
Moon is pretty bright tonight here. I have my tarp up, more to see how to hang it than out of need. May need to drop that corner to keep from getting moon burn!
Unfortunately, I'm just sleeping in my ENO normal hammock, not my Hennesey. I didn't bring a tarp with me so I might have to rig a bandana as eye shades!
I'll be curious to hear your report in the morning.
Nah, we used them to keep beer in before it went into the cooler; buy in bulk, it's less expensive!
So, when are we hitting the "bat cave"?
I have a Clark NX-250 4 season hammock system. The fabric is thick enough to be mosquito proof. The 6 huge pockets with full width velcro closures on the underside of the hammock are great for storing gear where it's easy to get to while in the hammock, the gear stays dry, the gear provides insulation from convection heat loss, and because the gear is hanging in pockets below me there's no lumpy surface to sleep on. The integrated double zipper bug net and breathable double zipper (cold or wet) weather shield that both totally enclose the hammock are suspended from lightweight pole hoops at the head and foot, or can be stowed. The ends of the 10x10 tarp can be velcro'd together in "cocoon mode" for extreme weather. There are 2 small internal pockets in the head end. One has a full width Velcro closure. There is a grab loop to help with positioning inside the hammock that can be used for securing a small stuff sack. The second bigger pocket is actually an integrated pistol holster. Clark has some simply outstanding designs for solo and double hammocks for 4 season to tropical use.

I have to be in Packwood this weekend to do a bid for affiliation of our archery club here with Trad. Bowhunters of WA, so this weekend's out for me. What about the weekend of the 10th-11th? I'd REALLY like to try one of those EXped combi things!
I haven't followed this thread at all but I came across this today and thought I'd drop a note here. Hopefully it applies. I think it's a good price for a hammock.
Ed thanks for posting this. Totally hooked and super excited about trying out my new sleeping gear. Been working through my DIY gear for a couple of weeks now.
Had no idea this option existed. Looking at how this gear packs down in comparison to a tent, its a no-brainer. On top of that flat ground isn't really a need.
Looking forward to a new adventure and thanks again.
Glad my needs helped you Jersey. I'm loving the sleep quality each night in my hammock. On the trail, front yard or back porch. Love it!
Only drawback is, it's a bitch to find something to hang on above timberline when you're on a sheep hunt...
