    The whoopie is strung inside the larkshead. Doesn't this have the effect of loosening the larkshead somewhat? Or at least, attempting to?

    Dave, it didnt when I was in it.

    There is not nearly the tension on the RL as there is on the suspension. Slept in it 2 nights and nary a problem. In fact, the second night I pulled the RL out to about 105....VERY flat lay for me and no issue.

    I made a hammock sock and used it last night... with the non-structural, adjustable ridgeline from the Speer Bugnet. If I place the bury correctly, I could replace the Speer line with Amsteel, adjustable from within the hammock, with no knots.

    Good idea, Opie!

    Hey, Opie, so ive been thinking and mabey im not the first one to think of this (and mabey it makes no sense and im over thinking) but this was my ideah, would their be a possibility for a woopie sling tarp ridge line. So let me know if this makes sense. Basically you would have one woopie sling loop/bury on one side and just a biner tied to the other side on an Xft piece of rope. The biner side you'd wrap the rope around the tree and just clip it like a tree huger. On the woopie loop end you'd put a biner on the loop, clip the loop (with the biner) to the rope like you do tree hugger strap. Then all you would have to do is pull the burried rope in order to tension the ridge line. Then you would just use a prusick knot to attach tarp to the line (either with dynaglide or bungecord which ever would be more grippy to the amsteel). This would make a self tensioning continious tarp ridge line, and in my head appears to be a great way to adjust your tarp ridge line with no knots (except for the biner being tied to the rope on one end). Just pull the burried end as tight as you want your tarp to hang. If this is a conceptual concept id be interested. I hope this makes sense Ive been thinking about this for a while, this would allow you to tension the tarp ridge line with no hardwear such as a figure nine, rope grippy things or knots

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    but might put more force/compression on the treebark- at least in lbs/square inch;not that hanging a tarp is all that tight, but I try not to leave marks on my support structures...just thinking out loud..KM

    KM I wouldent think that doing it this way would have any more impact (or less impact) on a tree then just tieing loops around them or using another means of tree attachment, I guess you may be able to make the line tighter by pulling the burried end through very tight, but I would think you could get just as tight with a figure nine or any other adjustable knot. The purpose of my idea would be to eliminate knot tieing and the use of hardwear to tighten tarp ridge line. But I dont want to hurt the trees...I also dont want to hijack this thread so if this is to off topic I can start another thread on this...also opie love the website just had some time too look at it
