    Respectfully, I think you may have 'overthought' that to the point of failure. I say that as a person who has the tendency to do the same thing, so I recognize it easily. :mellow:

    Beautiful hike! The trees along the first part of the trail are stunning. I would sit and stare at them for hours. The agriculture monorail is fascinating; I think I would like one for my yard just...

    That really is a great color, and a great hammock. Nothing wrong with staring. I seem to be doing a lot of that lately while sitting in the hammock.

    Like the others, I would encourage you to go with something made for a gathered end hammock, like a Wooki or a HG Incubator. If it helps, I LOVE my Wooki paired with my WB Eldorado.

    Yikes. 9' or less is too short for me. I really like the idea of them, especially for packing on a motorcycle trip. Seems like I am probably not the intended demographic though.
