I should have mentioned that my first foray into Hammocking was more than I was prepared for for several reasons but the most prominent one was the fact that I discovered I was an idiot with knots. I just could not seem to comprehend how to string that Hennesy. I didn't like the bottom entry, discovered that I am someone who can't sleep well unless I can also sleep on my stomach (or was it the short time at it?) and that with the small tarp over the hammock it was hot, yet I had rain come in the sides one night. Not an auspicious start, but somehow I am still drawn to the idea and will give it a more proper start.
I'm going on a nine week bike tour from NC to Texas this summer (and back in a north swing) and want a tarp set up over my tent. That would make cooking much more pleasant in the rain and it will also give me a chance to get passably proficient with knots and what Knot.
I like the warbonnet hammocks and after almost buying another tarp I thought that it would be smarter to get the tarp that goes best with it - his own. That way after I come back I plan to buy a warbonnet to go with the warbonnet tarp.
can anyone be more specific about how to tie the loops and any tips that there may be? I was hoping that was the case, but just wanted to check before deciding that the grommets weren't important enough towards my intended use for this summer.
I'm going to check out Grizz beaks ... so, again, thanks!
