In my living room at home,,inside,,I move the hammock with the whoopie sling at the foot of my Warbonnet Traveler shorter than my head end of the hammock by about 2-3 ft..and sleep like a baby,,even with the foot end raised about 6-8 higher than the head as it gives my wife room to go into the kitchen or bathroom without disturbing me and having to move any of the furniture. Works for me,,but outdoors, I even the ends up and raise the foot end 6-8 inches and have not noticed any real difference in the lay. Maybe its cause,,when I lay down in a hammock..I just pass out and go to the deepest sleep ever,,,and you can set a bomb off next to me and I wouldn't wake,,lmao..
