@REI-CarterC - For the time being, I've put my hanging plans on hold (which is to say, I'm leaving myself hanging LOL).

Because there's a good chance that I'll get to do some backpacking in Colorado this year - and still hoping to the the rim to rim GC - I decided to get a free standing tent first. But I am fortunate in that, being 6', I still fit into most hammocks but I am definitely going to take a look at the Hennessy setup that @Dice is referencing.

Of course, that means I (cough)(cough) will "have to" buy a new under quilt. And I suppose I should get a hammock-specific sleeping pad. Hmmm... bunch of ridge line accessories are in my buying future, as well. Probably should get a color-coordinated outfit to match the new shelter system.  🤣
