13611Re: [Hammock Camping] Hennessey Hammock Water Collection System(Funnels)
- Apr 27, 2006I used a DIY funnel on this and try to solve the small debris problem that
was on the tarp and washed into my platypus by putting some mosquito netting
between the two screw-on caps from a coke bottle or similar while I was
going through jungles of Central America (Guatemala and Honduras).
This method worked okay for me, it rained sufficiently at times ;-)
With a lot of rain, a drip stopping wire *MIGHT* double function to keep the
water off your hammock line into your bottle?!? Probably a hell of a lot
lighter too.... Mmmm will play with this whenever I get an opportunity (will
take too long unfortunately).
I think I put some pics on (go to the photo section and look at
gonewalkabout2003 ) Not sure if this is clear to you or not. The first pic
is of the second method, just the caps, without the funnel (didn't work too
good) but it shows the mozzie netting better. Just shout if you need
Hope this helps
It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most
intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.
