    Question Which is your direction / position in the hammock?

    Just curious. From all the reading Ive been doing it appears that the diagonal (Left to Right, or Right to Left) position i sleep in is not very usual ammongst the HF members. So, just to get harder facts, Which is your possition?

    Head to the left, feet to the right when laying in the hammock.

    Head to the left, feet to the right, no matter what hammock. Occasionally I'll try the reverse but usually end up back the way I started.

    I'm still playing with length of sag. sometimes it feels good left to right, other times right to left. I hung last night testing out a new idea(new for me any how) and the sag was perfect to sleep right down the middle with no shoulder squeeze, or banana syndrome. hopefully I can duplicate this setup when I get some cord and add a ridgeline

    Vertical.

    Seriously, it depends on which hammock I am in. There is no "right or left" possible in a BMB, and the Clark is usually down the middle as well. The BB is head to the left, feet to the right; and all the others are whichever way I feel like today.

    Since I have a HH, I'm pretty locked into left-to-right, but honestly I'd prefer to lie the other way.

    Well, in such short time I think i can correctly say my first impression was definetly wrong, specially since the rising of the Blackbird. Sorry for not having in mind the bridge hammocks or the bb. Now that i think about it, from where the heck did i get that most HF member slept straight? Any how, thanks for colaborating with the poll.

    elcolombianito,
    I didn't notice your "signature" earlier. It's a great "Shugism"! Still makes me laugh.

    I toss and turn allnight long. Doesn't matter if I am in my bed, tent or hammock.
