all secure in sector 7
Yeah....you should. Takes a couple of tries to find nirvana.
I live in the city, which I honestly love (I can bike everywhere), but it means that I can't hang nearly as often as I would like (since I don't have a yard). As such, I don't get lots of opportunities to make adjustments and test stuff.
Every summer I do a week or more of spoken-Latin immersion. Last year I decided to bring the hammock (needless to say, a very wise decision), and got to spend a week and a half in blissful slumber instead of waking up with an aching back. For the first few nights I was making a lot of little adjustments - hang-angle, ridgeline length, etc. - until I got it right. I still have a lot to learn, but that experience made me feel a lot more confident about what I was doing.
I was just out at the lake earlier today adjusting my new ridgeline.
You will never stop learning about hanging. There is always something new to learn.
Keep pressing on, you'll be hanging with the best in no time at all.
Shug... you are quite the character...I truly enjoyed watching your videos.
That sounds an AWFUL lot like windsurfing. Seriously, how hard can it be, right? Admittedly, windsurfing is more physical, but it LOOKS so easy. Little known fact: Windsurfing and hammocking are perfect complements for one another.... after a few sessions on the water, the hammock looks REALLY good.
