Hey there guys,
Long time tent dweller here who enjoys fly fishing and camping. I have admired yall from a far and finally decided to give this thing a try. (Love of Linville Gorge led me to Shug's videos) I ordered a Grand Trunk ultralight because of the price and to see if I like it before diving in deeper. I also ordered some Eno straps and I realize those are not all that popular, bit I was hoping it would be enought to get my feet wet.
First I thought I would try the ropes system that came with the GT. First problem, no system came with the hammock! Before I realized this I stupidly untied the S hook and short chord looking for more and it came completely undone. Yikes!
I don't have time to put any money or effort in a better system and I realize they're out there but can anyone advise what knot to use or how to retie? I'm hoping to hit the NC moutnains this weekend and convince my son-inlaw there are alternatives to tents.
Thanks in advance, sorry to be so needy so early.
