Re: Hammock Camping Sleep Pads
- I've also had the buckle problems Marge referred to. I often solve
the problem by putting one or more of my pads inside the Pea Pod
shell so they lie outside the hammock. I favor the comfort of the
hammock without a pad inside anyway; but it is warmer if the pad is
inside. So I let the temperature tell me where to put the pad/s. Of
course folks without the Pea Pod or Bear's 'double bottom' hammock
can't do this. And such a wide pad is difficult to fold/roll and
stuff into a pack. So I use wide liner pads for car camping and
multiple narrow pads for hiking.

- Ed, I have a question for you.
When I purchased my hammock (Gathering '04), you mentioned that you had one
hanging in your bedroom or the like.
I would like to set mine up that way too, but I need to know how.
None of my walls (plaster in 125-year-old farm house) are the correct
distance from one another. In other words, the hammock would have to hang "catty
corner" from two adjoining walls. I weigh 180. How could I do this in such a
way that the hammock would not fail?
