At this point there is almost no other original items left any other than the hammock and tarp.
First the whole rig between lamp post and tree.
Next The Hammock Knot, the new rope is 11 mm, 8 mm would have been better, but I did not find any from local shop. Original rope was 5 mm and too narrow for Tiblocs.
At the process I also changed the inner ridgeline. The white line seen in these images is simple 3 mm polyester rope from fishing shop. It is easy to tie and easy to see in dark, the original black lines were not very good ones. This pic is from early tests, and the white rope does not attach to the hammock ropes anymore. A also do not use snake skins anymore, there is no need for them in the winter time.
Here is close shot from tarps ridge line, there is the hitch knot that makes it possible to adjust tarps ridge line tension if needed. Also the Prussic knot where the tarp is fastened with original plastic hooks is seen. And of course the Tibloc device.
Bigger picture from the hitch knot (I found it from internet, it has got name, but I do not remember it anymore). I use it for side lines and tarp side lines and tarp ridge lines other end. It seems to work well. Easy to tie and easy to untie. The other end of the tarp ridge line has a mini carabiner.
Under the tarp image. There is the hammock with two sleeping bags, one Thermarest deluxe pad, two underpads, two undercovers and one overcover. They have been hanging there over three months now.

I did not like those elastic cords. They are always on my way when moving around hammock. But because they are necessary to keep those underpads and covers in their place I had an idea. I just tied them together. Hope it works.
Nowadays I tie first the tarp line with mini carabiner and then with "hitch knot" to the other tree (lamp post in this case). After that tarp over the tarp ridge line fastened with adjustable Prusik knots and stock Hennessy plastic tarp hooks. (not my idea, learned the system from Hammock forums). After that those tarps side lines. And only after the tarp is ready I put up the hammock.
There are more phases in this system and more work, but lot less hassle. And in the end it is much easier the get the whole system up properly than in the original Hennessy way.
I also bought 150 cm long webbing loop, original Hennessy ones were too short for bigger trees.

Now I can go on with the usability tests in real environment. When the weather gets little warmer I will do some one night trips with this set up. We have temperatures here now between -20 - -25 Celsius (-4 - -13 F)
