in the past few trips I have set up my 2 hammocks as a vertex style set. I secured each hammock to one tree and the other end to 2 separate trees. Keeping the together but separate. I do this because I don't have a decent tarp yet. My choices are; one that's to small or a Wally blue tarp that's 16x20.
so my question is what are the negatives to hanging 2 hammocks one on top of the other? I would be closer to the ground ( maybe just 6") and my son would be above me. His is a bmbh mine a bias camper. I understand getting in and out would take an effort, but I already don't let him try on his own when we are sleeping. The only other thing I could think of is if his hammock fails he would end up on me.
if anyone has tried this and has pics that would be great.
