San Antonio let's say :) from now till september would you try to save
some weight and just do your z hammock and a thin pad?
Currently I am thinking of making a 'Zhammock' with 1.1 ripstop
whipped, a bugnet tube, thin evazote pad, and 1" webbing. That will
make a nice summer (half the year) hammock here in texas. Anywhere I
can save even more weight? maybe the webbing?
Enjoy your stay in S.A. ;)
