Pole on HH fly
- Has anyone tried this? Looks like a good idea for the smaller fly,
and possibly even an 8x8.
- no but it is interesting...could you add on to the center line and
fly it like a kite? FWIW I never had a lot of problem with even
wind blown rain. never been in severe wind and I am in trees (not 2
in a field) so that helps.

I have used a tent pole, (4 sections) slung underneath the hammock
from the corners of the stock tarp and tie the outhaul of the hammock
to the poles. Advantages: no stakes, no tripping, and comfortable
swinging. Disadvantages: Extra weight, when hammock is empty a slight
breeze will flip it over.
p.s. Thank you for your service, from a twenty year sailor.
