Re: Permethrin- was Hammock Camping] Mosquito protection
- This one is really weird for me. The same/similar product is sold
with a different label for use on clothing, but this one
says "immediately wash all residue off clothing" or some such.
And this warning is not so much a product liability warning like
"danger - toaster will get hot"
or "danger - scissors are sharp"
but rather a federal law barring the use of the product in a manner
not allowed by the label. An actual federal law, not just some
threat by the manufacturer.

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. :-)
