Hey this is exactly how I do mine. Cool! Awesome illustration!
Don't let life get in the way of living.
Great illustration of a simple, solid set-up. Great work, Derek! Thanks again. Right now I've got a single ridgeline, but I may have to give this a try.
I am doing the Dutch hook around the tree,,,and at the tarp,,larks tie a Dutch tarp flyz from the tarp to hook the single line to..very simple and sweet to tighten the tarp as well as move it from side to side to adjust and get over the hammock. Very quick and easy. Prussics on my tie downs of the tarp as well,,love this setup,,its a combination of the 2 videos that Ripwaverly had in previous posts. Very great illistration above!

I ordered one of the first sets of Dutch hooks because I saw this setup in my mind as soon as I got a look at them. I've been using it ever since and cannot imagine ever switching to something else. I use a continuous ridgeline all the way across the tarp.

Hmm, I've never heard of positioning the tarp line above the hammock line. I always put mine below.
I guess I should try this out, but I thought the tarp lines needed to be at the same level as the ridge of the tarp.
