Re: [Hammock Camping] Re: Gear Hammock Qs
- Since it looks like you are going to be running a separate line
anyway, just suspend your pack on the new line through a loop on top
and your cinched up waist band or pack cover? slide it along the line
until it is accessible and out of the way. Secure with a larks head?
Since it will be under your tarp with you, it won't need a lot of protection?
