Are there specific reasons for not using permethrin products that are
not sold for use on clothing... or is it just something that seems
quite right? The first thing many of us notice is that when you

Doesn't hurt to have em out east either. I carry extra straps along
with the HH because sometimes the spot you'd really like to use
requires the extra rigging. Normally though it's better to avoid
larger trees because of deadfall risks.
When my brother and I went to Big South Fork a few weeks back, the
only hammock spot I could find down by the river had an 4ft. dia.
windthrown tree near a smaller one. All the other options were
crawling with poison ivy. So I tied the two straps together and
wrapped em around the prostrate tree as many times as I could, tying
off back to the line. The other side had the usual HH strap. It
worked. Without the extra strapping I would have been forced to go
partway up the bluff face to find something useable.
Yea, let's see that car hammock of yours. :-)
