    Somehow I think that you are only telling part of that story . What were you doing when that knot slipped? Better yet, where did you end up when it slipped?

    ...and there came to be a day, all too soon, that I became aware that I could travel no more on my long journey. Though I did not arrive where I had planned, I believe that here is exactly where I am supposed to be...

    it's been a while & you know my memory (getting old... soon be 49 )
    as best i can remember, i was bouncing, so it was getting a pretty hard test<g>.
    since then i've decided that not much bouncing is necessary to test hammock stuff. after all, if you bounce much, you're multiplying the force way beyond the norm.
    but that wasn't one of the times i ended up on the floor or ground though
    one of those times was when a hammock made from some really light weight material from the $1.00 bin gave out on me. it was probably around 1.1ozs & not ripstop. but i really liked that hammock... for a couple months.

    Sounds like you could use a hammock made from trampoline material...

    not anymore... i just don't test my hammocks as hard as i used to<g>.
    but after a few trips to the floor/ground i have developed a slight paranoia of un-ordinary sounds coming from the hammock.
