    Finally! My day has come!

    I get to lay in my Hammock for the 1st time today! The weather has finally turned around up here, I won't be camping but at least I get to try it out! After having it arrive in the mail, along with a few other goodies (thanks to the folks in the PIF) I have been daydreaming non-stop!

    Re: Finally! My day has come!

    Good to hear you got comfy so quickly.

    What were you struggling with in terms of tarp setup? There are loads of you tube vids that can help you out + way too much info on here as well.

    What method did you use to attach the tarp to the trees?

    It was just the wind blowing like crazy and my tarp was hitting some small limbs, just went into panic mode thinking of it getting a snag. I had a contiuous ridgline, might go to a tie off on each loop on the tarp.
