Thank you all for the references. Great stuff and cheap too.
So if I am reading right. these 2-3 mm ropes can be used for supporting the hammock right? Here's what I am thinking ... An adjustable suspension system with no hardware. I may be nuts but I'm sure you'll let me know if that is the case.
My plan is to use my slapstraps around the trees and then rope to attach directly to my ENO end rope. I'd attach the webbing from the straps to the rope using a Lap-knot
(aka sheetbend) and then use a rolling hitch
knot to form an adjustable loop to attach the hammock. Aternatively a prusik
could be used but it would require more pieces of rope. Crazy? will the rolling hitch hold? thoughts?
