I agree, this is a little hard to explain.
1. Stick my head and shoulders through the slit and turn around so that I am facing the opposite direction I would be facing if I were lying down. At this point I am standing up and bent over at the waist, with the ridgeline against my back.
2. Position the pad(s) the proper place, diagonally in the hammock.
3. Fully unzip my sleeping bag, open it up, and put it on top of the pad in the position it would be in if I were sleeping. I may pull the foot section off to one side to get it out of my way.
4. Turn around and sit down on top of the bag/pad. My butt should basically be where it is when I sleep.
5. Remove shoes and leave them under the hammock.
6. Pull my feet into the hammock and make sure the slit is closed well and then put my feet into the bag and zip it up to my waist or mid-thigh. At this time I will also make any adjustments needed for the position of the lower section of the pad and sleeping bag.
7. I will then lie back making sure I am centered on the sleeping bag and pad. If I need to adjust myself I can reach back and grab the hammock fabric just above my head and use it to pull of lift myself into position.
8. Zip the bag the rest of the way up and settle in for sleep.
9. Get back out and go to the bathroom.
10. Repeat steps 1-8.
I know this sounds complicated but with very little practice it becomes almost second nature. I would say that all the steps listed above probably takes me 15-20 seconds and I will be ready for sleep.
