    Greetings from Ontario, Canada

    Introduction,

    Just ordered my HH explorer ultra light A - sym zip, with hex fly, bubble pad and over cover..just returned from a great trip into Algonquin, had enough sleeping on roots, rocks and in puddles.. So I am exploring hanging so I can sleep without waking to a root imprint in the side of my cheek.

    Any suggestions on set up, ridge line, best way to set the fly, best height to tie off for a 190lb, 6 foot person so they don't struggle getting in or out along with keeping as straight a line as possible for sleeping without hitting the ground?

    Welcome from another Ontario Hanger in Oshawa.

    If you haven't seen them yet, go watch the Shug Videos on Hammock Essentials for the Noob. It's a Sticky thread in the General Forum.

    Cheers

    Brian
