I am a complete beginner to hammocking, In fact my only experience is watching clips on youtube
I have done a fair amount of camping with a bivvy bag and tarp but have a few questions.
I am interested in using this method:
But want to know what knots to use to connect the ropes to the hammock,
my idea is to replace the tape with 9mm rope and use a couple of rolling hitches to form a loop.
Also i have a british 58 pattern down sleeping bag that I can use as an underquilt and i was thinking of getting a cheap web hammock that i can put it on and sling it under the main hammock using shock cord connected to the
loops on the hammock but that sounds rather a complicated way of doing things, what do you think?
The hammock is a dd camping hammock and I am 5'11" and 196 lbs if that makes any difference
