    It doesn't hurt to fall. But not having suspension for the rest of the night or rest of a trip sucks. If it breaks night 1 on a three night outing then you have no hammock.

    MSH is not a knot. It is a hitch. Hitches need to be tied or hitched around an object, remove that object and it falls apart. Knots can stand alone if you remove an object it is tied around.

    Even with a tiny house you need a piece of land to put it on. Just get an acre somewhere, build a small shed for bathroom and hang your hammock where you please. No need for a big fancy house.
