Hello all! I was messing around today with the hammock and decided to hang the trap. (ok, I'll be honest it's a sad excuse for a trap but I wanted to get a feel for size, fit, height, etc.
This is just an old silver tarp that I've used a few times in the woods to block the wind while sitting around a camp fire.
This got me to thinking, how high do you usually hang your tarp? Seems like most of the pictures that I see on the forum the tarp seems to be just about right on top of the hammock.
I measured the set up in the picture and the hammock empty was about 24" off the ground and the tarp was about 55" high. I could stand bent over under the trap and sit up in the hammock and not hit my head on the tarp. Is this probably about right? Is there a general rule of thumb? I know that how it is set up will be in account of weather etc, but didn't know if there was something general to keep in mind.
