19619Re: [Hammock Camping] Re: Introduction
- Dec 27, 2008Thanks, Jeff! I have a Kelty Noah's Tarp we've been using as a kitchen
fly for a couple of seasons. Haven't had a chance to set up the HH
yet, but if the tarp looks small, I have an alternative. Still picking
up ideas for insulation. I'm hoping to avoid another big investment.
In the tent, I generally sleep warm in my Cat's Meow 20 degree bag, on
a Thermarest pad, but I'm aware that heat loss is a bigger issue in a
hammock, so I'm looking around for some closed cell foam. Will have to
try out the HH before deciding what to add. I haven't told the Crones
about my new hammock. Springing this on them should be fun.
Fascinated by the whole concept of stealth camping, too.
Okay, I'm 60, going on 10.

Then you'll surely want a larger tarp than the one that comes
standard with the HH. There are several option available...Speer has
an 8'x10' and an 11'x10' Winter Tarp, JRB has an 11'x10', and MacCat
has a few models you may be interested in.
There are also cheaper ones since weight isn't as much of a factor
for you...check on the Kelty Noah 9 or the Guide Gear 9'x9' and
Any of these will give you room to lounge and cook, sit with your
friends, etc. I usually hang my son next to me under the same tarp
when the site is right.
Welcome to the gang!
