    You could poke a hole and go inside the bug net using the same ridge line, or go over the bug net. I have a Skeeter Beeter too and I don't see the bug net to be a problem. If it were me, I'd just throw the ridge line over the bug net.

    Yeah, that's me! I'm going to do a short series on tarp work (different origami designs, etc.) to manipulate different tarps. It'll be on my blog: http://theultimatehang.com.

    It would be great to meet at a group hang some time. I'll keep my eyes open for the next one.

    i would prefer it to work both with the hammock bug net up and with the whole hammock fllipped over. as i use it quite a bit sans net in the fall and winter. when i do use it i like it high and pulled out. very roomy. i know i prolly cant have both.. so i think ide like one inside the netting. straight thru the meat of real fabric if possible. i can always use the caribiners to quick tie a ridgeline when flipped..

    Thanks bunches dejoha for going the extra mile to take the pictures and re look at things. I do appreciate that. The other configurations won't work for any of my hammocks, but I appreciate it non the less. I haven't had mine back out since February. Which I did use in falling and blowing snow, but I hung on the normal long ridgeline and put up $1 light weight shower liners as doors ....hey, it worked, and it worked on two separate Funky Tarp set-ups

    And here's a video of dejoha's configuration in the snow.

    Why poke a hole for a ridgeline? Place a nickel outside, wrap a adjustable end line around it, same on the otherside, keep lose until you climb in adjust as needed.
