black grit in my ear. I wondered where it had come from.
Seriously, I have never given it a thought. I never put my shoes into
the hammock, and do a pretty good job of keeping clean on the trail,
both head and foot. I must admit that I have never smelled dirty foot
odor when lying down. I do wash my hammock every few outings, which has
become much easier since I began whipping the ends instead of tying them.

"apart" today to dry it out, and I was VERY happy with how easy it was to
get the double sheet bend out of the hammock/webbing (even while the
tubular nylon webbing was soaked). I am totally sold on it as an end
knot., as it uses up very little material. The pics I put up last week
are the very knots I had to untie today. They had been in there for about
a half-dozen nights of use (and lots of tests).
Now that they are out, I am going to make little "hammock huggers" using
this knot and polypro webbing, and then use rope between that and my tree
straps. Leaving your fly loose just before a storm is stupid, but it sure
enables the "improvements"!
