    Help with ropes.

    Ive been lurking for a couple weeks and absorbing all the information I can about hammock and hammock accessories.
    I'm planning on making a HH clone in the next few days.

    Here's where I need help. I just don't understand the suspension aspect of it.
    Not sure what type of rope goes where, and how to get it there.

    I hate asking for hand outs, but just cant find the right write up that makes sense to me.

    If anyone could let me know of some helpful links it'd be much appreciated

    Here are a couple of sources...

    "The Ultimate Hang" is a great book, which you can get in e-reader version from Barnes and Noble (nook) as well.

    Based on experience some of the attachment options to your Hammock will depend on how you whip the ends. Simplest in my opinion is to Larks Head your suspension to the hammock body...everyone has their favorite. My personal favorite suspension is to use cinch straps and buckles, second favorite is whoopie slings and tree straps.

    YouTube is a great resource to get educated as well.

    ^^ That man, right there, knows what you need.
    Check out his youtube site. Shugemery.

    Also, you may want to try UCR's(Utility Constrictor Rope). A great youtube video for them would be from SgtRock. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=Ch-bqE7OQZw
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you
