    help finding info about a suspension set up

    I would like to hang everything from one ridgeline, but I'm having trouble finding info about it. I tried to put together a pic of what I had in mind. The main line would be an amsteel whoopie with clips for a tarp (with prussic knots) and stationary hooks for my hammock. I thought this would make sure I get the same lay every time, and keep everything together. Is there any reason this would not work? Any help?

    Tarp attachment needs to be inside the hammock attachment or the tarp sags when you get in the hammock.

    Another SLS is here. http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=32421 This is the system I am currently using with a modification. Bearchasher used long Alpine Butterfly loops from suspension to hammock, I used short AB, 2", loops with whoopies to the hammock. The tarp is also connected to the ABLoops with mason line whoopies and small niteizes biners.
    Most of us end up poorer here but richer for being here. Olddog, Fulltime hammocker, 365 nights a year.
