- May 2, 2005I went camping with my husband this weekend and made
the semi-ultimate sacrifice--I let him sleep in the
new hammock while I slept in the tarptent on the
ground. His hammock experience didn't work out all
that well. We were up high on the AT, where the trees
have not leafed out yet, and a steady, driving rain
started up, intensifying as the night progressed. He
woke up around midnight laying in a pool of water.
The Pea Pod was pretty well soaked. He moved the
insulated pad up under him and warmed up a bit, but it
was a pretty bad night.
When we got home, I read him the paragraphs in
"Hammock Camping" about hanging a sock or something on
the line to deal with this problem.
It surprised me that it happened since the previous
weekend, at Trail Fest, with all that rain, sleet, and
snow, I had not had any water run down the straps and
into the hammock. Do you all keep something on the
line to intercept drips all the time?
