Youngblood - good info. I never thought about the decreased angle causing the hammock to sink lower to the ground. I'll still use ridgelines b/c I like the consistency and b/c I hang things from it, but I'll probably start hanging higher on the tree now so I get a more consistent tarp-hammock spacing.
Thanks for the info.
