I did get in about a 2 hour hang last night. I guess I was resting so well that I would wake myself up snoring... I did not want to freak the neighbors out, so I continued the snoring inside.
I had a vision of being able to have three spots to hang hammocks if needed. I took some time this morning and tried it out. I hope my idea works, but have not tested for weight issues with three folks hanging as of yet. I did test the HH to post. WM blue hammock post to post. They seemed to work fine. I will need to add some more padding around the post to soften the edges for the straps.
I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

Looks like a great setup, round off them corners of the posts and you'll be good to go!
To prevent the need to sand or round the edges of the poles, Rip and I threw some heavy duty eye bolts on each side of the pole near the top.
You'd need 4 for your setup - 2 per pole.
You can then just clip a climbing rated biner on each eye bolt and clip to the eye on your webbing or directly to your whoopie sling.
I rounded a couple of poles with a chainsaw. That's just the kind of carpenter I am. :rofl:
It may not be rocket science, but it's still science.
I agree that you should think about adding some eye bolts (drill all the way through the posts). It makes setup very easy.
In my three post setup, I only use one eye bolt per post. We share eye bolts when there's 3 hammocks, and have never had an issue with only having one eye bolt per post.
