Where do I start?!?!
OK, here's what I have...
HH Desert Rat (cuz it was on sale) with the extra large sil-nylon fly (the one that comes with it was much smaller). The standard straps and ropes that come with...
I have learned to tie the HH fig. 8 knots, not a problem.
1. How do I hang/attach to the tree the fly? What type/style knot/lashing should I be using? Is it supposed to attach to the hammock?
2. Whats the deal with these "slap straps" or this 'biner set up? Easier? How much more weight? How difficult to reconfigure/sew/tie one of those setups?
I want to make a semi-permanent setup for home. I want to sink and set to wood poles in the back yard.
3. If I use regular poles from Lowes, they are smooth, not like bark on a tree... Will the straps stay there?
4. Anything else useful I need to know?
