So, I'm very new to the idea of hammock camping but it had some strong appeal to me. My girlfriend got me the GT Nano hammock for Christmas and I decided to follow the advice in http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=20614 to create my ultralight hammock setup. I watched shug's videos and learned how to use the tree straps, toggles, and whoopie slings, but I'm absolutely clueless what to do with my ridgeline. I'm probably missing other steps too but I just don't know what I don't know!
So, help me out. What should I attach my ridgeline to? And how long should I make it? And how important is it to wrap some cord around each end to bunch it up for the whoopie sling prusick?
