the scissors is 8 inches.the orange webing is there to show how the hammock suspention goes thru slits
this is some 2 dollar wallyworld nylon ? ,very light,not ripstop,may be doing a oq with it with wool batting.
more of a top view,looks like i can use less material on foot end sides. this one was hung to scale the peak is about 5foot9in the ridgeline is about7 feet high on ends.i learned i will have to put a short strap on the peak so i do not have to reach as high to tie the ridge.
more of a under view
i was going to have a attachment point on each finger of the slit and attach them both to the guy line after putting over hammock suspention.i do not know what omni tape is but velcro is a good idea to use here.thanks for the suggestion.
yes the ridgeline between the slits will be longer than the hammock
as far as that last thing you said if i ever have to sleep on the ground again i am not going to use a tarp,may sleep in a puddle.i want to be as miserable as i can so i never forget,and never get myself in that situation again..
i hate being all hunched over,outside,triing to get dressed under my tarp.
