    First hang! So what if its in the yard?

    The mailman was good to me yesterday. I received my first two hammocks but didn't have enough time to setup both so I setup the Hennessy UL backpacker asym. After watching so many youtube vids (thanks Shug, Grizz, SGT Rock and others) setup was a snap. The only mistake I made was not "milking the bury" after I set the whoopie slings. Realized my mistake instantly when I tried to get into the hammock and my rear started to sink.
    Below is a picture of my first hammock hang.

    Here's a pic of my ugly marlin spike hitch but it worked!
