Hello all, if you havn't figured it out yet I'm in Australia in the sunny, humid, hot state of Queensland.
I jagged a hammock off ebay a week ago & spent the night in the small backyard much to my missus distress. It was great.
But...the rope I had on hand while strong enough stretched so by morning my bum was on the ground. The tree huggers don't seem to be the best quality either.
The whole suspension thing is crazy & there is almost an over load of info here. I'm cruising through the Ultimate Hang book which is pretty cool & easy to read.
I've come to the conclusion that Python Straps or similar are the easiest low tech option. I'll post a separate thread with all my questions elsewhere.
Anyway thanks for all the great info, top trip reports & fantastic photo's
