I'm with ya on that one, Ramblinrev!
I have trouble centering between the trees sometimes and it sure is a pain to keep serving up the spaghetti
Thanks for posting your photos and the info!

I think I might like to give this a whirl. Thanks !

Thanks for the heads up, HappyCamper!
I really appreciate it when people show photos of their suspension systems along with their descriptions. I'm not sure yet what I will go with when I get to making more hammocks, but anythings got to be better than tying and untying these lines over and over!
Thanks everyone, for all the good info!
