    Welcome from a (temporarily displaced) fellow Sacramentan. I love getting up into the Sierras and hammocking has made it SO much nicer. Have fun, enjoy, and learn a lot.

    If you want, I can make you a tarp ridgeline using carabiners and mason line as described in The Ultimate Hang for the cost of materials and shipping (about $5). PM me if you're interested.

    I've slept for up to 6 nights in a row in my GTUL without any problems at all. I find it to be very comfortable. But then again, I'm a smaller guy at 5'6" and weighing in at 155lbs. YMMV, I guess.
