Does anyone else sew the adjustable end of the whoopie into a loop at the end of the tree strap. I did this with my GTUL and so far, I don't see any drawback. When trees are really close together, you can wrap the strap around the tree more than once. Forgive my ugly sewing. I'm still new in the ways of sewing machines. With a ultralight carabiner on the other end of the strap, makes for a very quick set-up, low bulk suspension.
