5660RE: [Hammock Camping] storms
- May 11, 2004After tenting one night next to a chainsaw snorer, I added foam earplugs
to my equipment list. They weight approximately nothing and can sure
help you get a good night's sleep. I hammocked next to an old fashioned
hydro power plant one night and hardly heard a thing.
Besides being electrocuted or fragged, the other danger is having
your hearing damaged by sound concussion. (People have even had
their ear drums blown out.) By the time you realize you're in the
strike zone there's not much you can do. But you can clip off two
small bits of packtowel to plug your ears. Or some tissue will do.
Bear take-out bag, wilderness body bag... hammocks are so versatile!
