Thanks guys. What I would really like is to go on a group hang so I can get some advice from experienced hangers. I can feel underneath my hammock and get some idea of how snug my UQ is, but it's hard to be sure unless I'm outside looking in, so to speak.
Tried again last night but came in about 2.30. My bloody cat woke me up again! Swatting snowflakes again, then later on he came back miaowing his bloody head off. Note to self: lock the cat door before hitting the backyard!
