    Re: Video : A Brief Primer on Hammock Suspension, Part III : Constriction

    I'm getting forgetful. What % of the hammock length should the Srl be?
    I can't remember what it is or where to find it.

    I've been using a small safety pin through my UCR in the basement all winter. No slips, no deformation. 1/2 gram.

    Thanks for the video Grizzly Adams. I just switched to whoopie slings and the video help take the mystery out of using them.

    Thank you so much for this! All your videos were done at a pace where I, a confused beginner, could understand. You explained things the experienced might take for granted. Well done!

    While I enjoy Grizzly Adams' videos immensely, too, if you are a newbie to Hammock Camping, also check out videos by forum member Shug. They are very useful and EXTREMELY entertaining.

    Here's a link to his YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/shugemery

    Also, I highly recommend Derek Hansen's blog and book at:

    Thanks for the warm welcome and the suggestions sjarvis!

    I've been lurking for about a week now, and left wondering why I didn't clue into hanging before! Anyway, Shug has already been discovered, but I've only watched the 10 "Essential" videos so far.

    I'll definitely check out Derek's blog too.

    Thanks again!

    Thanks for this video as well. Got a good idea of what whoopie slings are good for.
