    We wanted to be let everyone know that Dutchware has purchased Clark Hammock Company. We have move the Clark Jungle Hammock forum into a sub forum under the Dutchware forums.

    Hammock Forums is a family friendly site. This means that our topics, language and treatment of each other are what you'd want your kids to see. We're not a bunch of prudes...we just think that the internet has enough places where that behavior is tolerated, and this particular site shouldn't be one of them. This is a great community where the norm is to support others in their ideas and projects, and not assume offense where none is intended...and therefore not to flame, call names, or create friction in our threads. Respectful disagreement is ok; disrespectful comments are not.

    Please participate in accordance with these guidelines, and PM the mods with any questions.

    Just a friendly reminder of HF's Terms of Service re: discussing religion and politics on this forum. It's not allowed.

    I thought a reminder would help us stay focused. Applying the TOS to the holidays, it's ok to wish folks Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Solstice, Kwanzaa or whatever...but discussions about the religious aspects of the holidays will be removed. We're here to discuss hammocks, so if you have strong feelings about religion and the holidays, please find another forum to discuss them.

    Hammock Forums has always had a strict rule against political and religious posts. This has normally applied to issues that most members can agree are contentious...gun rights and carry laws, differences in religion, political elections and candidates, etc. As we've said several times, this isn't about First Amendment rights but about keeping this particular site respectful and on-topic.

    New Tarp Came in!!!!

    Yeah, I got a 13 foot tarp for my Ridgerunner. I'd been using an 11 foot Superfly for years, and that does work, but it's nice to have a tarp long enough

    New Tarp Came in!!!!

    arcana73, You pretty much need 13 ft+ anyway to hang the Ridge Runner. That’s its minimum recommended spacing - though the person who uses mine

    How do you hang your tarp??

    I currently use a Dutch CRL with a Dutch Hook and a Wasp with prusik knots and soft shackles. I'm getting tired of dealing with the prusiks getting jammed

    It's easy to make the bumpers with non-sticky, self adhering silicone tape that you can get at any hardware store. For my RidgeRunner, I made two or

    Distance from fire?

    I'm typically a good distance away, just because of the position of the trees to the fire rings. However, I've been watching some bushcraft/survival
