oh wow!!! I'm still laughing!! At least you're still trying to get that hammock right. I too "had" one of those military hammocks. Took one look at it and decided to see if any of my scouts would want to experiment with it. Had a taker and I handed it over to him. I even made up some tree straps and threw those in too. All free, it was worth it to me to give it away (after your story, I'm glad I did)
Do yourself a favor and find someone to take that hammock off your hands and look into some of the ones the folks on this forum have

and a big welcome to the world of hanging
