      Ken, I wouln't discard hammocks yet without first contacting Philmont
      yourself and asking. As I said before, tarps and bottomless tents
      are not allowed. The hammock is a different animal. I would call.
      Their number is (505) 376- 2281. There is a lot of info on the web.
      Check out their website at www.philmont.com.
