Adventure Racer questions
I guess I'm the guy who has the Adventure Racer(AR) (donno why
more don't). The preponderance of my experience is with the original
HH and the Ultralite Backpacker Assym - I just haven't used the AR
extensively although, in the future, this is my HH of choice. I have
never used my AR (or any of my others, for that matter) as a lounge
chair. The hammock body guy line on the AR is of mini shock cord
composition and the tarp guy seems to be a thin nylon line or
equivalent similar to the conventional HHs. The nylon line is
attached to the shock cord by a simple knot which, I'm sure can be
undone. This being said, I don't see any reason why I can't slack
the tarp at each end of the main ropes and sit in it. I will try
this next time.
As for using it as a bivy in the absence of trees, although I
haven't done this either, I don't see why this is not a possibility.
Sorry for answering your questions with conjecture - we need more AR
owners in the group.
