Hennessy Hammock as hanging A-frame tent?
Ok, this post is intended for my fellow Hennessy Hammock users:
I know that a newer rain fly is available that is hexagonal. But I've been thinking..... Is it possible to pull the fly all the way down to the ground, and have the edge run along the ground? From the sides, therefore, it would look like a normal A-frame tent, albeit much taller.
I'm thinking this would cut down on a lot of wind whipping under the hammock itself.
So, to be clear, a much larger fly, which goes all the way to the ground on both sides, but still leaves hammock suspended in mid-air, even if it's only 12 inches off the ground.
What do you hammockers think of this idea?
