My HH exped was waiting on the doorstep when I got home from work last night so of course cutting the grass got put off until tonight so I could get the feel of hanging it. There was a little hestitation when I first lowered myself into the hammock but once I realized my lashings would hold wow! Should have slept in it last night but give it a full test later this week and am actually hoping for some rain.
That said, as a newbie questions will keep cropping up. First, for other HH user, do you find the standard tree hugger straps adequate or do you have a hard time finding trees small enough to accomodate the straps when finding a site to hang?
It'll be a month until the first backpacking trip so l'll have plenty of time to practice and definitely need practice with rigging a nice taut tarp but it'll come.
