I've decided to become a tree hanger! I just opened my new Hennessy Explorer Deluxe and I've a couple of questions:
1. What's the loop on the inside bottom of the hammock designed for?
2. In the lashing video on the Hennessy website, he shows alternating across the taut line and then down through the tree huggers to make the "Figure 8" lashing. I cannot tell from the video, but do you alternate the directions across the taught line on each successive lash (or are all lashes across the taught line made in the same direction)? I realize the grammer on this is terrible and confusing at best, but look at my username!
