4479TripReport: AT, last week (15/15 Hammock)
- Jan 27, 2004I felt cold reading your report. I hate cold. I like to sleep warm.
I was interested in your thoughts about the Speer Hammock being not as good for
bugs or going out for a potty break...
Having used both, I believe the Speer is only about 100 percent easier when it
comes to a late night potty dash. But this is something which you may need to
experience to get a feeling for.
I read Mirage's suggestion for building an easy version of the Speer. He is
absolutely correct. A trial version of the Speer can be built WITHOUT ANY
SEWING, in under 15 minutes, for about $15. I have been meaning to write a
little page on how to do so with pictures and WalMart stock numbers. Your story
reminded me of the need to do so.
Limitations of the 15/15 Hammock:
- Unknown how long the hammock edges will last without a straight hem to
- No bug protection (but I have posted a simple $5 solution for that as well)
I hope to get to the page this week.
