    I don't think that is right, although I might be confusing myself. A longer hammock would affect the suspension length, but I don't think anything changes the hang height except for distance of...

    I think you most definitely need a separate line for your tarp. As mentioned, it can either be a continuous line, which attaches to the ends of your tarps with prussic knots and little carabiners,...

    I think the biggest reason for the shallow look of your suspension is that the trees are kind of far apart. Try to find ones that are about 5 steps apart, and a bunch of this stuff fixes itself.

    By D-rings, I assume you mean the Warbonnet Cinch buckles that are your suspension? If so, switching them out isn't nearly as scary as it seems. Here is a video. https://youtu.be/eACtoiNnQFA . ...

    I wash mine two or three times in a washing machine, no soap. It softens it and makes it less noisy. Do not dry it, though. I am pretty sure dryer heat would melt it into a mess.
