[Hammock Camping] Re: Newbie introduction, and query.
- I made my first tarp out of 1.9 oz coated nylon (big mistake - quite
heavy). I made one out of 1.1 oz silnylon last fall (only used it
once so far.) I made it 10X5 because it's easier to make that size
a poncho also. I thought about the 10X8, but would have had to put
too many folds and velcro into it so I could wear it without it
About the hanging lines, I'm afraid I was unclear and might get you
into a tangled mass. I bring the two sets of lines in so they meet
in the center of the hammock. Then I pull one loop through the
other one. That way they may twist, but they don't tangle.
'next handshake seminar is on Feb 31. See you there.
