Bob: You have mentioned the hammock inside a sleeping bag method of
camping out.
We got a hammock. but found that the sleeping bag sags way below
the hammock.
What type of sleeping bag do you use? We have a standard down bag.
very light weight but warm. Or is there some straps or pull strings
you use. Do you have any photos?

I also use a hammock when I go backpacking. I used a sleeping pad for years and it work great.
I bought a under quilt last year from hammockgear.com and I love it. The thing with the quilt or the sleeping bag.
You have to have it snugged up to the hammock for it to work properly. Also no gaps on the ends, so cold air can't come in.
I hope that helps.

I use a couple tarp clamps picked up from Harbor Freight. I clamp them to the sleeping bag and atttach a draw string so I can close the end around me. This pulls the bag up to the hammock. Sometimes I clamp the bag to the hammock rather than use the drawstring in warmer weather. I have picked up some stretchy material and plan to sew it to the opening so that it naturally crinkle closes. The sleeping bag opens from both ends, so at the toe I just zip it up.

I put a line over top so I can hang a small tarp. Sometimes I attach the toe of the sleeping bag to it to bring the slack of the bag above the hammock.

The quilt looks interesting.

you should give a hammock seminar at rendy. next time you set it up take some photos. I seem to be a visual person.
I would be tempted to do so, but I don't see many people saying they are going to the rendy. I was planning to do a canoe demo too.

Just because people haven't said anything doesn't mean they're not planning to go. Phil and I are planning on it this year, but I don't believe I've announced it. The big part is figuring out the whole camping thing. Phil does not do camping.

Most people tie one or more of them. Some goats are bonded and don't leave. You might search the forum for highline and lowline since there have been many suggestions and much discussion on how to do it. Welcome to the forum!

Obviously you have not been reading my posts or you would have never mentioned a 'BOB JONES' show and 'learned alot' in the same breath. ;-)

I hope to be at the rendy this year- we drove through Utah on the way to Wyoming two years ago and kind of wished we could have stayed, it's so pretty. Bill and I are planning on bringing Blackjack the LaMancha, do a little light packing a few days before the rendy, then I'll stay to see the hammock show.

We are getting together a hike from Trial Lake to the Rendy starting a few days before the rendy. Why not plan to join us? I'll have all five of the boys.
