I am very new to this hammock stuff. After weeks of utilizing this great website/forum I have decided to take the "hang". So far it has been pleasing. I say "so far" yesterday I had my first major bump. I have yet to set up my hammock the correct way(thats what I think in my head). I have setup in near my house a couple of times. Once when I got the hammock. Once when I made adjustments to the suspension. Well I was determined to take my new tarp and hammock into the woods for some practice and maybe even a nap. From what I have read is that practice makes perfect. My plan was to hike in scope out 3 or 4 different possible hang sites. I would set up at one rest for a moment pack up and get to the next spot. Repeat. Third hang site was less than ideal, I might encounter this.(trees were a tad close but my hammock ends didn't touch) I set up. I am ready to enter. Slipping off the shoes and sitting. Then I rolled! IT WAS &$%^!*@ MESS! The part that is the worst my bug net is trashed! 300 hundred pounds and netting are not a good combo. So now I have a hammock with a ripped bug net. And I still have not slept in it. I guess now I get to make mods and DIY project. Sorry for the rant but needed to get that out.
