    blackbird question

    i strung up my new 1.1 DL in my hotel room tonight (it's a beautiful sight ). i've noticed a 1/2 wide thin strap on the outside and on the inside, kind of like ties. what are these? are they ties, so i can roll up the bug netting and tie it up?

    they aren't bothersome or anything, i just know there's a purpose to them but i'm not sure what it might be

    Yup! To tie back the bug net!

    How do you hang a hammock in a hotel room?

    i'm took my tree strap and tied a knot in it and closed the knot on the outside of the front door.

    it just so happens that i have a wall locker (it's actually a military barracks that i'm in) that is 15 feet from the front door. i took my other tree strap and ran it through the small gap above the top hinge to the inside of the wall locker, i then ran it along the inside of the wall locker to the other door (it's a 2 door design), i the ran it out the small gap above the top hinge and tied another knot.

    when i lay in the hammock, it pulls in on the wall locker door instead of pulling against the hinges.

    i'm taking pictures with my phone to post when i get back home. i didn't bring my cord to connect my phone to my computer so i can't post the pictures till i get home.


    hope that makes since
