I wonder if some of it is to protect people from idiots making bombs
and stuff. A simple reaction from household chemicals (hydrochloric
acid, sold as muratic acid from Home Depot, and aluminum foil in a
gatorade bottle) can create an "explosion" of sorts.
McVeigh made his bomb from fertilizer and fuel oil. THAT's what laws
like this may be designed to prevent, though I'm not sure how
permethrin reacts with which chemicals. Just a thought.

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. :-)
