    Ridgerunner bug net suspension question.

    How does one suspend the Ridgerunner's bug net under a non-Cloudburst tarp? I plan to try a UGQ Winter Dream 12 tarp with my WBRR but a trying to figure out the best way to rig the bug net. I could rig another ridgeline under the tarp, but would rather not. Any suggestions as to sewing loops or rings on a brand new tarp .

    Just run the provided shock cord up around a tree or to the buckle on the suspension, not much to it.

    This is exactly what I do. I clip it to where the two dog bones come together.

    First, there is seldom a need to connect the foot end of the net. Second, I find it is enough to attach the head end bungee to the same connection at the end of the tarp or on the Bridge suspension itself - at the head apex point. You just don't want the net in your face. And you sink down a bit in the bridge. so it doesn't take much to provide the necessary lift.

    Note - it you get a 13 ft SuperFly, it comes with under tarp connecting point for the RR bungee. That's a plus. The minus is, two more things (one on each end) to seam seal.
    In order to see what few have seen, you must go where few have gone. And DO what few have done.

    Brandon explains it in his video titled "The Ridgerunner", on the Warbonnet Outdoors website.

    Thanks, Levi.
    My only concern with Brandon's method is the risk of having the bugnet's lines outside the tarp and increasing the potential for water being directed toward the hammock. I understand the need for drip lines or other methods to re-direct the water but would rather avoid the risk and the need for these measures. I like how the Cloudburst has little D-rings for attachement. Perhaps, if a inside pole mod is used, then they could be used as attachment points.

    No offense intended, but I believe you may be over-thinking this. Any of the suggested methods will be fine, and aside from the suspension triangles, the RR is a pretty short hammock that will be well within the confines of a 12' Winterdream - so the risk or need for drip lines is pretty minimal.

    I believe Cougarmeat suggested this, though it was kind of buried - you can just clip the bugnet mitten hooks to the split rings at the ridge of the tarp, where you'll attach your tarp suspension. Then none of the bugnet tieout is outside of the tarp's coverage.

    Another option is to step up to a 13' Winterdream, in which case you can enclose the entire RR suspension under the tarp, and clip the bugnet hooks to the apex triangle buckle where the RR dogbones come together.

    No offense received. Just investigating options. I am a pretty flexible and adaptable guy and can make it work or live with less than perfect solutions.
