PostSubject: Wet & Windy!!!!   Sun 14 Oct 2018, 20:01

Just back from a Thurs-Sun outing and boy was it wet & windy!

Tried out the 'no tarp ridgeline' method (attaching the tarp to the hammock suspension - Loved it! much, easier/ quicker to set up and tear down.

The new 'Peak Shelf' from Dutchware was great too

Tried Idahoan mashed potato with cheddar, also a winner!

A great trip, can't wait for the next one.

Amazing photos!
How did you attach the tarp to the hammock suspension? Prusik knot on tree strap or directly to the cinch buckles / beetle buckles / other hardware? Did you use shock cord to prevent the sag of the tarp when the hammock is loaded?

Pics or it didn't happen! tongueup

Tarp attached to tree straps by prusik knot (with release loops through them) with toggles to put through keyring loops on the tarp ends.

Yes shock cord attached to zing-it guy lines via tarphooks.
