Sounds like you got a different Lawson hammock than I had. Mine was poorly made, claustrophobic and it leaked. I sent it back. I wish you better luck with yours.
So many trees, so little time...
We follow where the Swamp Fox guides,
His friends and merry men are we;
And when the troop of Tarleton rides,
We burrow in the cypress tree.
The turfy hammock is our bed,
Our home is in the red deer's den,
Our roof, the tree-top overhead,
For we are wild and hunted men.
