    Sleeping flat

    To sleep flat, do you guys hang the JH tight or loose?

    My wife sleeps with hers fairly tight, I sleep with mine giving pretty good sag. I am big, 6'2" 250 lb. and there is nothing more comfy for me than curling up in a fetal position on my side and sleeping like a baby, and then I can stretch out flat on my back with my feet up and sleep as well. I have never in my life been able to sleep on my back until I got a hammock.

    More sag minimizes shoulder squeeze for me. I do notice that if the distance between the trees is too great it is tough for me to get comfortable. The ideal hang for me is 6 paces. Not very scientific, but that is the measurement I always have with me.

    Experiment, discover, draw your own conclusions. That is the fun of this stuff.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    I have been using lots of sag lately and find it nice and comfy.
