pack cover alongside the pack. The sandals go in with me when I get into my

- One time I was testing an HH and took along a Hammock Bliss
cloth hammock to try out as well. It turned rainy partway
through the first day, and by the time I made camp the
ground was sodden.
I slung the Hammock Bliss hammock directly under the HH and
stashed my gear in that. It worked like a charm. I just had
to nudge the bottom hammock aside to enter or exit from the
It made me think that taking along a light net hammock for
gear stowage might be a good idea if bad weather was
expected. It also made me think that a net hammock slung
under the HH might be a good way to hold bottom insulation
under and against the HH. Never tried that out though...
For my shoes, I carry a keychain caribiner tied to a couple
of feet of paracord. In the day I wrap this around a nearby
tree to give me a hook to hang stuff on. At night I loop it
over the ridgeline with the carabiner hanging down, just
outside the HH. I tie my shoelaces together and clip them
onto the carabiner when I get in.
This leaves my shoes hanging outside the hammock, midway to
the ground. But it's still easy to grab the line and unclip
the shoes when I want to get out.
