So I finally received everything (Claytor JH, JrB 11x10 tarp, stakes, webbing,etc) so I got it all together and headed out to my backyard. Time to try everything out. Only problem: 2 trees, but about 45' apart. I knew I'd have to rig up something. I tried. Rigged up a support from wood and a steel pipe I had and used that for one side of the hammock. My butt hit the ground quicker than a politician changes his story. Rerigged it. Same thing. Man, I'm ticked and saddened because I really wanted to hang tonight ......maiden voyage and all that. None of my friends or family have trees close enough on their property so I guess the park will have to do this weekend. Don'tcha just hate when this happens?! Well, anyways.
