pretty excited, i'm set up my hammock in my yard and this is the first time i set it up and the first time i'm going to sleep in it.
i'm using a warbonnett blackbird, big mamba jamba tarp, and a single tarp ridgelne and guylines from opie. no uq or tq, just a north face 15 degree bag.
i had a little trouble setting it up, it wasn't as easy as i thought it would be. First time i thought it was at a comfortable height, then when i got in i dropped down to where my butt was on the floor. i had to raise the suspension and tighten it, however now i have to stand on my tiptoes to get in (i'm 5'9", is that to short for hanging?)
As for the tarp, i originally set it up like an A frame, but it was hot and a little closed in, so i propped one end with a pole and the other with a stick, then tightened the guyline down to the stake. Is that how its normally done?
Anyway, i'd appreciate all criticisms on what i did wrong and what could be better.
