      Then dug a small but arm length holes with my hands. Set the poles at a
      bit of an outward angle \ / , a bit wider than I would normally look
      for in width. set up the hammock and gingerly climbed in. the logs did
      straighten up a bit. But the held great with only about 24-30" of hole
      depth. Next time I will pack some wetter sand in the front to stop too
      much movement, maybe add a few smaller sticks to shim the hole a bit
      Set up the rain fly for some shade and enjoyed my vanilla soda and a wee
      Next time it is rock hang experiments with a trip to rei for some
      climbing nuts. I think most of the fun for me is trying to find new
      places to hang!
