I went out on Sunday to the river not far from home to test out my latest hammock. I also wanted to test my tarp setup before heading bush to make sure it would not fail when hiking.
The hammock was made from following headchange4u's DIY Hennessy HammockThe only difference is the way I folded the end and the way I whipped it. I'll cover that later on in detail.
The whole thing works well and is very confortable and with the Neo 9x9 camo I get great coverage. Remember it is the middle of summer here so no worry about rain.
So here are a few of the pics I took, I hope you enjoy.
The whole setup in place.
A closer view of the inside of the tarp.
Detail of the corner. T tied a length of bungee at the sides and cliped it to my treking pole with an s-biner.
The guide line from the pole down to a diy stake I made from an old arrow. I use a small figure 9 to tie it all off.
The tree end of everything. The figure 9 at top is from the tarp and the suspension line below is from the hammock. I always tie off the suspension like this, I love this method.
I am sure that if you have any questions you'll jump right in.
