Testing the hammock setup

A big storm is supposed to blow in tonight with big wind and rain. I think I may have to spend a little time out in the hammock to see just how well I've set everything up.

The Hilleberg 5XP is the perfect length for my hammock (actually my daughter's hammock pictured below) as it overhangs the ends by about 1'. The width provides a great deal of protection and, pitched as an a-frame, I can drop the sides down quite low if the rain starts blowing in.

I wish the hammock sat up higher when I was in it but I'm afraid a few extra snacks and gravity are finally having their say.

Wish me luck,
