    Confused

    I'm new to hammock camping, so bear with me..

    What the differences between the types of suspension systems? I'm assuming the ridgeline is main line that holds the hammock up? I need to get the hammock jargon down.

    Also, see Headchange4U's glossary of hammock terms:

    Mountains have a dreamy way
    Of folding up a noisy day
    In quiet covers, cool and gray.

    Surely, God never did.
