Last weekend I went to tyler state park with a few of my buddies and camped 2 nights. It was my first time sleeping in my hammock over night, and I'd have to say.... WOW!!! Beats sleeping on the ground in a tent any day!!! Only took one picture of the hammock itself when I got it all hung up with the bug net. Didn't even put the fly on, its Texas, and there was no chance of rain, and i was in a pretty shaded area. So besides it been super hot all weekend, it was a great time. Got to fight off the coons at night too, they are all over at that state park. Actually sat and watched one from my hammock, he was in the tree that the foot end of my hammock was attached to. Anyway, heres the pic I took and one more of a snake skin my buddy found, super wicked!
All in all the hang was great, definitely made my mind up that I will ABSOLUTELY not be using the slap straps anymore... you just have no adjustability. The trees have to be perfect, and you have to tie them at the perfect height, and they just weren't all that great. I'll admit, mine didn't stretch as much as everyone says they will, actually mine didn't really at all. But I think im still going to go with webbing and some descender rings. All in all good trip, super comfy hammock, and good times with friends!
