sleeping in my hammock in Ames. Hear what sounds like someone walking on a tarp and knew there was no tent there when I went to bed. Looked out of my hammock and there was a raccoon in the trash can. Kept an eye on him until he went off in case he wanted to get into my bag.
Yes that was me. there were times I wished I would have put on sunscreen before I rolled out. Usually forgot once I was riding. I tried to be quite and not wake you. I actually had a sleeping bag. I would get cold If I got out of the bag that’s for sure.
This is my first year also. I will bring my hammock along with a tent if weight allows, if for no other reason than to lounge in during the day. I thought about hammock camping also. If I do I will have a mosquito netting and a rain fly to keep off the dew and any rain.
