A question arised today, here is the original post:
Well, I don't know if this qualifies as a complaint or a concern, but here it is.
I've slept in my hammock over a dozen times since I got it. Usually, weekend trips with a few over nighters thrown in along the way. Something that I've noticed that I haven't noticed terribly with others.
The stock suspension webbing stretches. A lot. Friday, at lake murray, I hung my hammock as normal. tested it out, adjusted it and was satisfied it was the perfect height. Not to hard to get into, not too hard to get out of.
When I woke up saturday morning, I was considerably closer to the ground. Well, I've got the straps as high on the tree as I can reach (I am short) and the ridge line is as taught as I am comfortable with. I left the hammock alone and didn't adjust the suspension and sunday, I woke up about 6 inches from the ground.
Either I'm far more tubby than I suspected, or the straps stretch too much for my liking. Or, I'm too short to get them any higher on the tree. Has anyone had an issue like this? Did swapping out to a different strap resolve the issue?
After reading that post and not wanting to HI-Jack there post I thought I would post it here so my question is What is a good distance between tree's for a BB hammock I have hung mine in all different distances but what would be the perfect or near perfect distance between tree's to hang a Black Bird. Now I know that everyone has an opinion but I would like to here. And then I might post a Poll to vote on and see where everyone stands after I get different lengths or if someone else want's to head this up then by all means please do..
