Being less experienced hammock camper I am still trying to find my way and have a few questions.
Just recently bought a 3/4 UQ from HG and am really wanting to ditch the pad but first I need to tweak a few things.
I am 5' 11" tall and lay at a pretty sharp angle in my WBBB or Traveler (seems like the flattest lay) and on my back most of the night. Typically I lay with my head towards the left like you would typically in a WBBB. Just to add some more details, I usually can reach up and touch the whipped end of the hammock above my head to give you an idea how I am centered in the hammock. Head end is typically about 4 lower than foot end.
The thing I don't like about using a 3/4 UQ is that the suspension runs just over my head kind of like it does my feet. This distracts me and makes it hard to get to sleep some nights. I have even placed my Black Rock pillow between my face and the suspension (shock cord).
What am I doing wrong or is this something I will have to get used to?
I have looked at Shug's video's about a hundred times now to see what he is doing different. The only that appears different is he appears to lay at less of an angle but wasn't sure if that's only when he is filming and not sleeping.
Any suggestions from my peeps would be greatly appreciated.
I am leaving tomorrow to do some camping in Shenandoah, Va. so I may not get back to your comments until after the weekend.
Thanks in advance.
