A few times actually. Mule tape slipping, missing the hammock and sitting in the UQ, Went to Va and left huggers at home and used some older tiedown straps. But the last was the best. I had been playing with a single line suspension (SLS) and on our last group trip to Lake Wales Ridge. I had a tree hugger fail. Sounded like a 22 rifle going off. But in all events no harm was done since I'm never over a foot off the ground.
