    Yes, that's what I have. I removed the "sky hook" lines because I didn't like how thin the cording was. I wanted something with less of a fiddle-factor. I use dutchware's continuous ridgeline with...

    No, definitely not there before attaching the tarp, I'll pull RL as tight as possible before attaching the tarp. Using soft shackles/prussics, to attach after the RL is set.

    No, definitely big enough trees. When packing up and after disconnecting the tarp from the soft-shackles, there's probably enough slack in the RL to wrap around two fingers. I'm not using any shock...

    You hang your UQ straight? Just curious as to why. I've always adjusted mine so it matches my diagonal lay. Never had any drafts or cold nights.

    Check out Conundrum hot springs. It's a really easy hike in from Snowmass (much harder from Crested Butte/Gothic). Awesome place to camp with plenty of places to hang.
  12. DIY Double layered hammock with pocket for pad

    I'm looking for ideas/input on making a double layered (tablecloth) hammock that has a pocket for inserting a CCF pad. I'd like it to be more than just leaving one of the ends un-hemmed. I'd like it...

    If the straps are rated at 200lbs each, then wouldn't it have to be +100% to reach the load limit? So for example, at 20*, you're at 127lbs per strap, still 146lbs to get to limit total.

    Yep, no mosquitoes. However it can start to get pretty cold around then. You should expect to wake up to frost each morning. It may not, but definitely plan for it.
