Another First Hang
Got my WBBB 1.1DL and Superfly in today. Just set it up for the first time in the backyard. Going to sleep in it tonight. Supposed to get down to 25*. All I have at the moment are a 15* down bag and Air Core insulated pad.
The "holding your hand like a gun" trick works great to get the angle. I guess the ridgeline is preset for optimum? I need to play with the suspension height and hammock sag a little more, as I've read you want the ridgeline with just a slight amount of slack in it. It's taut right now.
Sleep well. Expect to hear of a comfy sleep and see pics of a smiling face tomorrow!
Have a blast, stay warm and looking forward to hearing how your night went tomorrow.
Hope you'll be warm enough. Set up looks good. I found mine was more comfortable with the RL a little looser than taut. Have fun!
Yay!!! Sleep well! I can't wait to hear how you do.
Tracking says my WBBB 1.7dbl is on the truck for delivery, so I should have a nice package on the door step when I get home
The setup looks great! Sleep well and update us tomorrow.
I'm curious about this. Do tell.

I think the tarp ridgeline needs to be higher. ???
Used prusiks(I think that's what they're called)on the ridgeline and toggled them to the tarp with a stick.
Not sure about this ridgeline to tree yet.
This is the "hold you hand like a gun" method I was referring to, as I understand it anyway.
If I wanted to connect the tarp ridgeline to the hammock suspension instead of running a CRL from tree to tree, I was thinking of still using a prussic and toggle at the tarp tie point but how would I connect to the wide tree strap of the suspension?
