I read in a trail journal about a hiker who cut the ridgeline on her HH and tied each end to a carabiner. Then when she wanted the ridgeline--for holding up the bugnet, for hanging the small items inside the hammock during sleeping, etc, she connected the carabiners to each other. But when she wanted to sit in the hammock in the evenings as a camp chair, she was able to disconnect the carabiners, so the ridgeline wasn't sitting on the back of her head.

Is this possible, or did I read something wrong?? I thought the ridgeline was part of the structure, and if you cut it the hammock would burst into flames or something.

Would be nice to be able to sit in the hammock without the ridgeline pushing on the back of my head.
