It's been a couple of months now but I'm just getting around to posting. I did a lot of reading here, I also asked a lot of questions in many post . I did a lot of testing in my shop trying to determine proper angles, height, sweet spot etc. I tried my best to to do everything I could to make my first night a sucess, and here is what didn't happen.
I didn't have to hunt a place to sit.
I didn't have calf ridge.
I didn't have trouble with hyper-extension of the knees.
I didn't shoulder squeeze.
I didn't have cold spots.
I didn't have trouble getting up and down when nature called.
I didn't have sore hips, knees and shoulders the following morning.
And last but not least. I DID'NT HAVE ANY BACK PAIN!
For the first night I'd say I was pretty lucky and I'd have to say it was a success. Thanks to all here who have helped a novice hammocker!
