Well I have never been one to give up after 1 bad experience or 16 ... so I'll see this through.

I'm trying to find a place I can use it close to home, I live in a townhouse with a tiny backyard and no places to mount it. Past my back yard is a parking lot for an apartment building and there are some trees there, might have to set up and have a nice sign out saying "I live over there, trying out my new hammock."

Hoping it won't be too chilly when I get to take it camping.
