    The picture shows my system of aluminum poles and webbing. I wanted to do something close to this, but then stumbled upon a post from warbonnetguy and made almost the same stand. At least I think so....

    I have a NX-250 with z-liner, but I am not too experienced with it. I bought it a few weeks ago and we had really cold conditions here since, so I had no overnight hang in this hammock so far. But I...
