    That is incorrect information. You CAN hang in national forests. Last I heard you can also hang in state parks now. PM jaxhiker or samsara and they will be able to get you the information you need.

    Never a good idea to wait and see if something happens. When it does, you'll probably be kicking yourself. In your back yard you have the safety of your house, but in the woods not so much.

    I don't think 12 per is terrible. I've got mine dialed in at about 8-10 per. I also have the tension set at 1. These light weight materials don't seem to require much tension.

    The problem is you're limiting your site selection. Finding trees at least 15 feet or more apart can sometimes be an issue. At those distances, your hammock suspension also has to be hung higher.
