Tent, hammock or other?
#21
I feel ya buddy, a good hammock setup is dependent on where you can anchor it.  Fortunately, where we're going there are plenty of appropriately spaced trees.  We've had multiple folks able to set up a good hammock spot in and around our campsite.

For me it works out as it keeps my head up an a 45 degree angle and I'm comfortable being cocooned in.  I've also been wanting to find straps like what Bob was using last time that really worked out well and also protected the trees.  Found them at a great price:

My wife believes 'roughing it' is going to a hotel that doesn't have a Jacuzzi in the room, so I voted for other.

I've already received the rain fly.  That was quick shipping!  Straps are on the way as well so it looks like it will be a hammock weekend.  Looking forward to giving it the test run.

I explain as follows.  I live in a metropolitan area.  It is semi desert, very little rainfall.  Mediterranean type climate.

I carry a German Army sniper sleeping bag in the car and a space blanket.

At home, I have plastic to cover windows, plastic/canvas drop clothes large enough to make tents.  I have a Wiggys bag.    The likelihood is that I will be at home.  The material is to block wind/keep off cold or moist surfaces.  No need for a tent or a hammock.

We have to be prepared for all the weather. This morning, it was 68 when we woke up. Now it is 36 degrees and we are under a wind advisory.

You ever think about getting the rain fly for either?
