    A whoopie with a UCR adjustment for a tarp, nice, so far I've been able to use the stock HH tarp prusick's. I usually do use separate tarp suspension.

    what i just do is, take my 1.75 mm zing-it whoopie slings, and suspend the tarp with those. then I just stake the tie-outs. works for me!

    I have been working on tree straps for my tarps. Currently I have WB MamaJama & WB Cloudburst. I got a pair of straps from Harbor Freight and cut off the metal buckles. They have loops sewn it so I don't have to hijack wife's sewing machine.Then yesterday I ordered a set of Elephant Trunks and some line and soft shackles.
    A _lot_ more complication than I'd like but this setup may answer the mail if Mr. (or Ms) Ranger wants to give me grief for bruising the trees.

    That is absolutely brilliant. I will be doing that to my set up this weekend.

    WOW!! MIND BLOWN!!

    On friday I did a quick in house pitch of my new hex fly ($20!!) and I was thinking of using the adjustable end of the whoopie to a figure 9 but this is MUCH better. Can't wait to test this.

    with my tarp having it's own suspension system & it's own set of snake skins, i can set the tarp 1st, b4 even getting the hammock out of my kit

    this provides weather protection during the hammock set-up & take down, which i think is important, to me

    this, also, provides the option of just using the fly, during a weather incident, while traveling(many do not have the luxury of carrying a separate tarp)

    if your every trip is to known spots, w/ known trees to hang from, in good weather, then i suppose reducing/simplifying your equipment list would work well

    just this old mans 2 worth

    What folks need to keep in mind is that the small HH tarp needs to be right down on the hammock to get weather protection. I just ignore wrinkles. If you go to a bigger tarp like the HH Hex or any of the other larger tarps that changes the whole setup and a separate tarp line is better.
    YMMV

    Free advice worth what you paid for it. ;-)

    Yeah, I still need to field test mine, I've been a bit busy with the job lately. If you get out there first let me know how it works!

    Will do. I have to make some whoopie slings for my new hammock and I will make them with this in mind.
