My new (read first) hammock arrived yesterday while I was out on a hike (figures right!). Even though I was tired and sore I had to get out in the yard and play with it, had some fun figuring out the webbing straps for the trees and the knots on the rope with the Clark drip protection like in the videos on this site. I've been searching and reading various threads on how to hang this hammock, and I've heard things like hang it so the bug net is a bit loose and the hoops a bit towards centre etc, but I've also heard the 30 degree rule all over the place...
I'm having a hard time getting 30 degrees and the right amount of tension on this, is that normal or is there a 'trick' to it I'm just not getting?
Thanks from a total (but well read) noob
