I haven't been camping in dog's years, not since I moved back to New England in 1999. So I'm a bit behind in the latest and greatest gear that's available. Today, I learned about a cool thing (which I want now): The Hennessey Hammock. The hammock has a mosquito net on tip, a rope 'guy wire' that both helps to keep the hammock tent-like, and keep it from drooping from your weight by providing tension along the sides of the hammock. Hammocks are comfortable and lightweight, and, so long as you have trees or something to string them from, they are quick to put up. You can't beat that!
So, you can use this little bit of info in a story some time, if your characters are out camping someplace. I actually have a story where they are out camping, so I might even be able to use it.
