Yep. That's what I meant. ;p
So I went to Big Sur for the first time yesterday. BIG TREES to tie
my hammock to...now I know why folks out west need larger tree huggers!
I bought a Los Padres NF trail guide and waterproof topo. I figure
with my school schedule, I can make a few 3-day trips during the
quarter if I bring one of my books to read. They'd have to be Friday
morning to Sunday evening. Anyone have any favorite hikes in the area
for me to check out? Anyone in this area want a hiking partner?
Also, I rigged my hammock up INSIDE my Wrangler a few days ago. It's
tight, but I could sleep there. I put one end over the sport bar
right next to the windshield on the passenger side, and the other end
in the back corner of the driver's side on the roll bar. With the
back seat removed and the passenger seat leaned forward, I have just
enough room to be comfortable. I wish I had another foot or
so...maybe the Wrangler Unlimited will have just enough room. But
it'll be great for quick trips to the beach over my lunch break, with
the roof down and the doors off...
I'll get pics sometime soon.

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. :-)
