    Found a fix for my Lost River

    I bought my Lost River UQ awhile back and have really liked it for hammock camping in FL. But I've been fighting with the suspension trying to keep it under me all night. The existing loop suspension (hook one loop over each gathered end on my WBBB) has allowed it to consistently slip from under my left shoulder, and down under the hammock to the other side. After fighting with it repeatedly during a rather cold night I found the solution (Short of buying/DIYing a set of triangle thingies) Take the 'left over' shock cord from gathering the ends and tie them over the hammock ridgeline with a slipped square or granny knot (just like tying your shoelaces). Kept the son of a gun under me neat as you please. I'll have to get a set of triangles eventually, but this was a great 'stop gap' measure.

    Mine fit better like that as well, other than shock cord getting in the way, I can't see any reason why UQ's have the lines going to the gathered ends, instead of over the ridgeline closer to the center. On my LR 3/4, the shock cords are not even really in the way when I do this.
