Only drawback is, it's a bitch to find something to hang on above timberline when you're on a sheep hunt...:eek:
I do all my sheep hunting around Butte montana , plenty of trees for privacy & the sheep are well trained.

On the serious side I wish I hade seen this post about three years ago before I spent my money on a tent trailer as this would have been a much cheaper investment

You can "go to ground" with a Clark as an oversized sized bivvy bag; best to use a ground sheet. It's got stake out loops for the sides near the ends. The head and foot hoods for the bug net and weathershield are rigged with guy lines over trekking poles or sticks along with the tarp instead of using the little pole hoops. But it's nowhere near as comfortable used as a ground bivvy. The Clark is quite a clever (cool :cool: but a bit spendy) shelter system.

Check out www.buttinasling.com

I have the weight weenie micro ultralight hammock and it is fantastic. Way lighter than a lot of other offerings and made in Tennessee.

Get yourself some of that patio door cling plastic that they use to seal against drafts... Duct tape some plastic grommets on the corners... Boom. Ultralight, cheap tarp cover.

Use some cheap tulle from the fabric store to make a bug net.

I will 2nd the ENO hammock. I hiked the Oregon section of the PCT last year around this time and used the hammock most of the way. Nice, lite, and it kept me off the ground.
