Re: [Hammock Camping] hammock adjustments
- just wondering, but does anyone know if those little metal adjusters
like you find on tents (sort of look like a nuber 8 ) where you stake
it out would work to hold either a tarp and/or a hammock (after
running it through the tree huggers of course)? it would make
adjusting a breeze and really isn't that much weight. besides we could
most likely get them for free from our old tents we no longer use!
