RAIN FLY Why do so many cultures use hammocks in the jungle, you ask For starters, they get you up off the wet ground They can also be quite comfortable They can get you further away from spiders, scorpions, snakes, and other nasties The hammock is one of the most underutilized shelters for survival, and you can make it with just a bit of rope and sturdy fabric Grab some finger thick rope and two tarps, pick out two strong, young trees, and youre ready to create your own hammock and rain fly Start out with one of the long sides of one tarp and roll it up halfway across the entire tarp Then roll up the other long side to meet the first Now well grab one end of this bundle and bend it to make a J shape Tie a sheet bend knot with a length of rope Using a second rope, tie another sheet bend on the other side of the tarp Select leg thick or bigger trees about 9 to 12 feet 3 to 4 m apart, and securely tie the end of each rope to a tree, as high as you can reach I like to wrap around the tree twice for good grip on the bark, and tie to the trees high up to compensate for the settling of the hammock as the knots cinch down This keeps you from dragging the ground in the finished hammock For a roof over your head, tie up another tarp as an A frame rain fly between the two trees KEEP CREEPY CRAWLIES OUT OF YOUR HAMMOCK The last thing you want to find in your jungle hammock is a sampling of the local wildlife, especially if it bites Use these three steps to avoid waking up in the middle of the night with an unwelcome visitor in your sleeping space STEP 1 Keep it well covered Things have a tendency to drop out of the trees in the rainforest, and when your hammock is sitting there open like a big basin, its only natural to find all kinds of creatures raining down upon you Hang a rain fly over your hammock, even if its the dry season STEP 2 Limit access Just as you dont want to lie down on the ground in the jungle, you dont want to have open access points that lots of pests and dangerous creatures could use to join you in your hammock Dont tie six lines to your rain fly when four will do the job STEP 3 Block the way Tie a kerosene soaked rag to each hammock line to keep spiders, snakes, and ants from scuttling down the lines to join you in your cozy hammock Because of the scent and the feel of this fuel, most creatures wont go near it let alone crawl over it.What if you were dropped in the woods with little than a knife, your wits, and the hopefully warm shirt on your back Could you survive If youd read this book, the answer is yes Survival Its one of
