Re: Binder clips (was: First Hammock Camping experience)
- Another use for binder clips: I brought some on my recent Long Trail
hike so that I could attach my Tyvek ground cloth to the bottom of my
hammock like a Garlington insulator if it got cold. Never needed to
use them, but I would have gathered the ends of the Tyvek and clipped
them to the hammock, inserting dry leaves or spare clothes for
insulation. Did use the Tyvek for tarping on the ground one night.
