As long as it is not raining I set up my hammock first and then position my ridgeline to rest on my tree huggers. It can be done while raining if you go back and re-set the lines over the huggers after securing your hammock.
So your tarp is pretty low and tight to your hammock?
To become Old and Wise, First be Young and Foolish.
