risk try taking a knife into the hammock with you, it might be that
piece of mind thing that can let you sleep less worry free.
well lets see the things a bring in to the hammock with me are: the
top bag from my pack which i put the following things ( my hammock
fits in it perfectly btw), and in that goes a small water bottle, a
snack or 2, if solo a hand gun, and last but not least a sharp
knife. also i put a shirt or socks in it so it works for a pillow.
my reasons for each are snack and water are obvious... handgun is
also obvious, and sense i use a hennessey hammock the knife might be
very nessessary if something goes wrong like the foot end tree falls
on me and pins the bottom of the hammock down. as a matter of fact i
carry a knife everywhere i can and it has been very useful including
possibly saving a life once.
BTW i have come up with a new hammock design that crosses the HH with
the speer and should weigh about 1 lb in it lightest set up, it is a
modular design so you only have to carry what you will need for
expected weather. i will post more later as the prototype is built
