    Test hung the Mammajamba

    I finally had a chance to get out and string up my new tarp. I loaded the dog into the car and headed over to Thompson Park in Monroe Township. The park has some great trails and the dog needed a walk. I also decided to test my tablecloth.com hammock. A few of things I discovered.

    1: Colgan Poly Rope is garbage. Don't buy it, I tossed it as soon as I got home. I was going to use it as a ridge line for the tarp, but it started to fray the minute I put around a tree. I replaced it with 1/8" Diamond Braided Polypropylene Line from Attwood.

    2: I need to make a set of whoopie slings for my DIY hammock. I figured the tree straps that I brought along would be more than enough. One strap was about six feet long the other was about four. I made it work, but whoopie slings would have made things easier.

    3: I'm glad I have a Python Skin being made for the tarp, it'll make life easier in the future when it's time to pack up.

    4: I really need to count my stakes before I leave. DOH!!! Left one behind.

    5: I should have taken more pictures. I'll take more on my hike this week and post them in my trip report. I might even try a video.

    Looks real nice. I'm getting the same tarp soon. Did you find it pretty straightforward to setup?

    Nice looking tarp. That thing is a monster. Glad you were able to get out. I haven't been to Thompson Park but might get out there this week some time and check it out. Beauty of a dog too.

    Perfect addition to your hammock set-up. I have the same tarp and have used it many times with great satisfaction. I see you have the panel pull outs - don't forget to seam-seal the panel pull-outs from the inside. I also purchased a amsteel ridgeline with knot bones, prusik loops and mini biners from whoopieslings.com. Ti stakes round out the set-up.

    I was thinking about putting in a center pole mod but that is what the panel pull outs are suppose to do with less weight.

    Brandon makes great equipment and has very responsive customer service.
