Don't know if there is initial stretch or not but definitely needed to be higher than "chair height". Was worried about stability having it so tight since I'm not the most graceful of people, but had no problems. Actually tested the limits of the tip and rolled so far that I was eyeballing the ground but never felt like I was going to go over. Only thing that kept me from falling right to sleep was the sun hitting me right in the face while on my side. And the nosy/noisy neighbors. Once I get my tarp issue and under insulation straightened out, might try an overnighter for the real test.
So far....I'm really liking it. Switching to whoopie slings since the knots were a little annoying with the multiple tweaks.
Very cool. Just noticed you are in Hoosick Falls, right down the road from me. Didn't know there was another Ridgerunner so close!
