So I finally managed to get my SB Pro set up and I found some info re: ridgelines and was trying to get everything just right as is noted in the "hammock camping basics" illustration.
Here is what I came up with.
(I posted these to imageshack because they are really big and album here wouldn't let me upload them)
This image shows my full setup with all measurements.
I am a short guy (5' 4") and I really strained to get the straps as high as I could but I still couldn't get a 30 degree angle unless the hammock was touching the ground. What am I doing wrong here?
This image shows my height from the ground while in the hammock with the above setup.
With the 110" ridgeline (it started out as 104" which is 83% of the SB Pro's length but the paracord stretched like crazy) I was able to lay pretty dang flat even without the 30 degree angle. But I am very concerned about being so low to the ground. Any suggestions?
Thanks for taking a look!
Here's a nice shot of the view from within. Pretty comfy!
