    Continuous Ridgeline Help

    Alright guys I need some suggestions. I am currently using dutchware stingers on both ends of my tarp to make the V so I can place my hammock between etc. after my last trip I realized I would like to have a continuous ridgeline, I did a make shift ridgeline and really liked being able to hang all my equipment from the Ridgeline. Any sugestions on the best way to accomplish the V while having a continuous ridgeline. I would like to accomplish this with the use of dutchware or other advantages. Any sugestions? Videos or pics would be great.

    Have you tried going without the V? I personally find it a waste of time - solves a problem I don't have.

    I have tried, but for me it just seems to be more versatile.

    I did see that setup and liked it. Idk guess I'm looking for something else. Not sure what yet. Thank you very much for suggesting it though.

    I'm not sure what you're looking for, but to maintain the V's with a continuous ridgeline and Dutch bling, that's a pretty good solution.

    Here's another photo. Zing It, Dutch Hook and a Stingerz.

    That's actually basically what I did with the stingerz, just didn't seem to work well under the tarp.
