Re: [Hammock Camping] Digest Number 672
Which hammock did you use with a T-Rest and have a problem?
Tom H. nearly insisted that I couldn't have been truly sleeping if I had a night on a T-Rest and didn't have it "squirting out from under" me. I do use a piece of shelf grip liner with a Therm-a-Rest, so there is that. I keep wondering if another part of the slip puzzle is how much one inflates the T-Rest? I can see if it were stiffer, the mattress would be more difficult to keep stable on a curved hammock surface. I let it self-inflate and don't add much more air, so the mat remains rather flexible.
Maybe inflation is part of the situation????

The one time I tried to use a thermarest I could not keep it under me.
I think they are too heavy and do not mold as well to the shape of a
hammock. However, with my limited experience, you should definately
listen to others findings.

the 27 inch wide Target pad which was sort of sticky. The new Target
pad is a bit more slippery. There is a walmart pad which is nice and
sticky but it is too thick for my likes.
I'm off for a 75 mile AT section. Y'all be nice while I am out.
