This season, I decided to try the hammock thing. I picked up an ENO lightweight model at REI and brought it with me on my section-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail in southern Oregon the second weekend in June. There was more snow than usual, but that's a different story.
Anyway, the first night, I discovered that using it has a fair learning curve. I'd bought about 50 ft. of tent guy-line and used that to hang the hammock. I was a little concerned about it supporting my weight. What do y'all use to hang y'all's hammocks?
After entering the hammock--which was tricky given that I also had to enter my sleeping bag, too--my rear end was touching the ground. What have y'all found to be the optimal height for hanging a hammock? What should I expect the line tension to be?
