    Moskito Traveller Hammock... tarp ridgeline?

    Hello,
    Just ordered two of these for my boys. I have noticed that the ends are of a Brazillian type of setup. Multiple ropes. Will this affect the ridgeline length of a tarp to keep it dry. I just imagine all of those ropes grabbing rain and pulling it into the hammock. What do you think?

    We will never conquer a mountain. The mountain allows us to visit and with enough time asks us to kindly go back down. And sits in peace with or without our presence.

    Put some drip strings on the lines to be certain.

    Shug... Do you recommend just a small piece of rope on each string dangling down?

    I would say 1 small piece where suspension meets hammock not the individual strings.
