Re: modified don henley hammock
- I think what slowhike is saying is to unhook the ridgeline and then
flip the hammock over so you lie on the nylon, rather than lying on
the bugnet. i don't know if anyone has done that with a henberry
hammock or not...

there's not too much stress on the netting. That's worth a good look!
And that'll make it a top entry hammock, so you could use a PeaPod if
you wanted. In cold wx, you won't need bug netting anyway.
