Added photos.. Or did not happen.. :-)
Was bored today.. Thus, have not really hung my Hammock up to do a complete set up and crawl in for a Nappy / Cold brew. Some odd things Learned/surprised. hmm.. So I went with back to set up low Near ground again.. Crawl in, out Re-adjust till feel some what level. ( best results) Lots of in & out In & out. till I achieved, both ends at Equal height seems to work the best. So far...work in progress...
Blue Ridge line ratchet straps.. not Hammock related ( was my hang rack for spraying Permethrin on gear).
My ENO single Pro-nest (96" Long) with Whoopies, using straps & biners.
Tried the APP's for grins on getting idea on height distance etc. Loved that IPOD apps, on Hammocks.
Tree Spacing was 17 feet. ( had to try it)
used the IPOD specs. Say's 82"
With Sit height of 24"s.
suspension from anchor to hammock 77" (Head) other side 60" ( Feet )
The 77" side gave me angle of 30 Degree's & sit height 30 inches.( pressing center of hammock down)
the head side at 30 Degrees
the feet side 40
Side view of hammock.
After, I re-adjusted. Had both ends equal height.. felt better, for set up. vs the IPOD spec's. BUT.. still learning too...
Maybe? tree's should be rule of thumb closer 12 -13 feet max??. Dunno
Do wish had bought a wider one.. this feels slightly cramped. My first Real Hammock, So Learning from Bottom to Tree Dweller status.
I made up a 6' leg Tri-pod, For Tree less Camping, As using one anchor point of the Xterra.. and hooked to tri-pod 12 feet away. ( Need to anchor Tri-pod to ground for taking weight. Almost did a boo boo. Almost!!.) Still playing with it.
whew.. Hope all that makes sense to your experts. I am still learning this New Hang system.. From 30 years ago Rope hammock.. To This Modern day hammock.. lots changed.
Thoughts????, Or just keep Tweaking, till I find the sweet spot.
