alright, did some research and gomer me I didn't put the ridgeline in which caused me all sorts of problems to be honest as I had the hammock pretty well straight and snapped a carbon toggle by hooking it up wrong.
As you can see in these pics the hammock is not level (should it be?) looking at the ridgeline it is dropped towards my head. I used marlin spike hitches for the two toggled ends. My tyvek tarp will be done soon and i'll put it all together but it was down in the 40's when we took these pictures tonight and I had CBS! So a UQ and TQ is next on the list.
Gotta say, once I got the sag in the hammock, laying diagonal was no problem. My oldest kid thinks this is her toy so she's sliding down from the gathered ends most of the time...Those two trees are apple trees in my front yard, which make a perfect spot, also i tried to keep the hammock roughly 1 foot off the ground when loaded down with my 6' 172 lb. body.
I am open to all comments, suggestions, blah blah blah BIAS is KING!
