    Red face does the Grand Trunk UL have a foot or head end?

    hi! dumb question, but... is there a head-end on the Grand Trunk UL? doesn't appear there is - but i find i consistently feel more comfortable if i hang so that the hammock stuff-pocket is on my left side. it's a pretty cool low-cost hammock and i like it. i just put my old WB webbing on it and hang around the house. thank you friends for any feedback

    I didnt think there was one. I mean even on a blackbird some people find it more comfy to hang the opposite way they tell you to.
    Dale Gribble: I'm thinking, "new hammock." For me, laying and swaying in a hammock is like a steady morphine drip without the risk of renal failure.

    Both sides are the same, however you may want to mark one end so you don't put your head where your feet have been.

    I find it handy to have the attached bag at the right side of the hammock so when adding the adjustable ridgeline, make it so the fixed end is at the head and the adjustable end at the foot.

    I ended up putting those yellow zipper pulls on the head end of all my hammocks...If somebody else puts one away (like wrong end first) the yellow zipper pull helps identify the head end quicker.

    Walmart sells the black ones and Academy has the yellow ones.
