Yeah a tarp might have helped a little bit.
Yep! Woke-up about 3:30 with a really cold nose! The snow had weighed down the bug netting till it was resting on the tip of my nose. A quick 'punch' to the netting and it was solved for another hour or so. The netting did not let ANY snow through; surprised me! You can see the snow is thinner on the head end of the hammock from my snow removal.
Another lesson for the newbs about the length of webbing/rope on each side of the hammock. If you look at the pic in my previous post and the pic below, you'll see a big discrepancy in the length on each end. There was a dang bush right below the hammock if I centered on the webbing. If I didn't have the length on each end (12') I would not have been able to hang anywhere in Pop's yard. That extra few feet really pays-off sometimes. I had just enough webbing left on the head end to tie the slip knot; no extra at all!
