I have a Blackbird on order and want to be prepared to use it as soon as it arrives. If I am correct, only one stake per side is required for staking out the hammock to each side and both tie-out lines on each side go to the one stake. So I would use 2 stakes for 4 tie-out lines total.
What length of tie-out line do the fine experts here at HF use with their Blackbirds?
Oh, and one other question, does Brandon ship his Blackbird hammocks with tie-out line attached?
