What knot would you recommend when the tree diameter is > 1 meter (or maybe it's 1.5), and the webbing isn't long enough to go around the tree twice for Ed's recommended 4-knot loop or similar?
As for the (winter) tarp, the included guidelines are 1-2 meters, just about enough to be possible to tie around the trees at all. If I tie it that way the trees have to be as close together as the length of the tarp and then there's barely room for the hammock. :P
So I'm guessing that's not how to do it. Enlighten me!
PeaPod: How do you make it tight enough at the ends? Seems to be leaking no matter how hard I pull the strings. Should I then use those strings to fix it to the hammock webbing so it can't move up and down, or leave it like that?
