I'm new to the whole hammock thing and learning as I go. I have a question which I am sure folks here can help me with.
I use a Kelty 9x9 tarp over my WBBB and tie off each end with separate lines using knot bones. Do I need a ridge-line hung from tree to tree to hang the tarp over or can I just tie it off on the tarp loops? Will the top of the tarp "sag" during the night from moisture or dew without a ridge-line?
I do know I need shock cord for the ground tie-offs to absorb flexing tension but is it also necessary for the ridge-line?
I'm looking for the best, easiest to set up, fastest and most compact method for pitching my tarp.
