    I'm actually doing my first solo hike/campout tonight and I use a similar setup:

    - rope around tree (as a tree strap)
    - biner on the strap
    - whoopie sling to biner (and tarp guy lines to biner)
    - other end of whoopie sling attaches to aluminum descending ring secured to hammock with small loop (double fisherman's knot)

    I'll take some pics/vids and post them tomorrow to demonstrate. I think it's similar to what Shug is describing.

    Shug.. That is a configuration I offered early on... Having a ring built into the fixed eye. It didnt sell real well so I ended up dropping it.

    I think using the tail of the sling as a drip loop would also work.
