I ordered my first hammock, a GT SB pro, and I love it, but I have a few questions about basic hammock setup.
First, this hammock is wide. I don't really have anything to compare it too, but I feel like it's wider than normal. When I lay in the center, the sides fold up around me like a tortilla, making it funky to lay in. I tried laying at a 30 degree angle, but this didn't help much either. What can I change in my setup to get it to lay flatter?
Also, how would I configure a tarp on this thing? My idea right now is to just hang another line above the mosquito net from tree to tree and string the tarp over that and stake it into the ground. Any suggestion that require less equipment and hardware?
Thanks a lot ya'll. This site rules!
Edit: I should also add that I do not yet have a sleeping pad to use in it. Just my sleeping bag. Maybe a pad will help in keeping it flat?
