It seems you prefer hammock, but in N. America I very rarely see this. Would you mind sharing the advantages to using a hammock?

Well its compact. Everything you need fits in your backpack, therefor carrying less. You're also avoiding the cold ground provided you have a sleeping mat or underquilt. I just got into it. Hanging just seems a lot more.. well... fun. I recently just got back from a solo camping hammock trip. Let me tell you I'll never sleep on the ground again. Unless there's no trees around.

I did also notice that in North America. I was trying to look for alcohol burner stoves and couldn't find any in my area. I don't think people around here camp that way. It seem just the UK

Guano, neat. I'll definitely give it a try. I wonder about the air flow.

Root, I'm new to this so. Tarp positioning is something to practice. But from what I've seen. It's about the season(condensation) and wind speed and direction. Check out youtube videos on hammock camping. It'll stoke you up to go!!

Guano, ah man, with summer approaching I'm already super stoked. My current setup is just a two man tent, so it doesn't take up much room. I am interested in saving space though. I'll definitely look into it.

Root, haha haha can I introduce you to kayak fishing to? Lol Throw it all together and you've got bliss man.

Guano, I kayak, just too afraid to fish from it. I feel like one will pull me in. :)

How do you deal with mosquito?
GuanoAuthor
They're not that bad sometimes. But head nets and hammocks with bug nets work real well. But once you've got a fire going, they won't bother much

Alright and when you are floating with your kayak?
GuanoAuthor
There's no mosquitos or no-see-ums on the ocean.

Mmh I thought it was on rivers
GuanoAuthor
Ya I don't head into rivers too much. Not until the coho run comes

Guano, around here we kayak on lakes and rivers. In the spring there is some decent whitewater.

No, I don't I should have added that. I don't own a kayak but am thinking about getting an Alpaca inflatable.
