I think either the Clark or the Hennessy hammock can be set up as a tent, if you want.

Hammock Forums

WARNING! The above website is highly addictive!!!


I like sleeping in a hammock, myself. Much, much more comfortable. And I use a tarp above it for rain protection. You can see out the ends if you hear something.

Good luck with your decision!

I agree wholeheartedly with Blast. (But you're absolutely right; he won't be able to get your knives, as you've already told us you'll be wrestling bears with them.)

So, here's some information, as you requested:

You are not remotely prepared or qualified for the journey you keep asking Cub Scout level questions about. For that matter, I don't even believe the statements you're making or that you're taking this great soul searching trip.

Showing up on a board dedicated to personal responsibility and refusing to take any (e.g., "I refuse to prepare or practice in any way," etc.) and making absurd statements like "LEOs can KMA" or "I don't care if I put SAR personnel in danger trying to rescue me" says volumes about you.

I think Blast is a fantastic poster. You are not.

"...going aerial for a sleeping platform..."

Not being a hammock person, I am trying to get a view in my mind of getting into a hammock, strung between two trees, about 50 ft in the air. I can't see it. So how would one get into bed up in the air???

Please! We avoid all personal comments, personality conflicts, flame wars, etc. etc. in this community. We avoid them like the plague. They invariably interfere with useful discussions, and waste everyone's time.

You may disagree with previous comments, but do not respond in a personal manner. Please reserve your comments to content-related points. Otherwise, you're skating on very thin ice.

I respectfully submit that you need to "change course" right away.

We won't be hearing from Chaotiklown for a week or so... We'll see if he has a change in attitude at that point.
