OK, so I made my first hammock. actually tried to make it as inexpensive as possible. I used the idea from RISK and made the Test Hammock (super easy to do) Now I have it set up in the backyard, between a tree and the fence. If I put sag in it I am sitting on the snow if I have NO SAG it seems like it is right. How do I know how much sag there should be.
2) When backpacking, how much webbing/rope do you bring to hang the hammock? Is it easy to find trees within 12-15 feet apart?
3) I have seen the decender rings on a few web sites. at my REI they are 4.50 each. is there a cheaper way to go as far as the rings go?
that is all for now. I am going to sleep in my hammock tonight,. I'll let you know how it goes.
