    Converting stock suspension w/ whoopies..... tips?

    Later this week I'll be swapping out the stock ropes on my HH Expedition and was wondering if there's any info out there I'm missing. I've seen the videos on Dutch's site and bought the 15" whoopie slings already. I only had a few minutes to look at the hammock and confirmed it is the older style (?) with the holes in the ends - not the flat webbing.

    For anybody that has already done the conversion: is there a "best" way to run the fixed loop of the sling through the holes? And I'm guessing I'll need to attach the ridgeline to the whoopie sling - any pointers for that as well?

    Thanks in advance folks.

    Enjoy the whoopies! I made the switch recently and am quite happy with the ease of the conversion and the performance of the items. It has significantly cut down my set-up and take-down times, which was my primary aim, along with wanting to make it a no-knot suspension.
