Well I spent the night outside in the yard. Not the coolest place to camp hanging on the clothesline, but it did the job. The CJH fits , but its feels a little cramped, I can get used to that. I might be limited on how high I can hang the ropes on the clothesline, and need to test out on real trees to be sure, but I had problems sliding to the end all night w/ my sleeping bag. I tried to hang the foot end higher, but maybe not enough. the slack in the hoops(poles) on the head end looked good , but the foot end looked tighter. The screen was a little saggy so I know I didn't have the head end too tight. The ropes did settle or stretch quite a bit throughout the night and I had to get out and adjust as I was on the ground. I gave whoopieslings.com a try and should have a new suspension to try out this week. All in all I like the hammock and just need to get used to sleeping in one. It would have been fairly comical to watch a 350lb guy twist and turn trying to get in his sleeping bag comfortably. There has to be a trick to this. I can tell you guys/gals out there thinking about a CJH that if I didn't rip this thing twisting around all night like a stinking worm, it is pretty bomb proof. I am going to try some kind of cloth (like the kind one puts in the drawer to keep the silverware box from sliding) under my bag and see if that eliminates the sliding around, I know this sounds stupid, but hey Ill give it a try. I will post real tree hanging results when ever I get out again.
Thanks everyone with their helpful comments
