    Also new to hammock hanging, and this forum.
    I just hung my new HH, I did it in the back yard from the porch to the fence, not ideal but I figured out how to hang the darn thing, now I have to work out the tarp, I am a complete idiot in that I just can't figure it out. I think maybe I am missing something, I got the HH from someone who was kind enough to send it to me so I could try it out and he had already put the snakeskins on, is there a connection I am missing or can I just tie it to the tree above the HH and do the best I can that way? Oh I am truly gonna love this hammock hanging. Finally sleep on the trail.

    I thought you sounded familiar. I just posted to this question you had on WB.

    If it is the stock tarp it is made to be tied to those little hooks on the support line. The issue with this is when you get in and the hammock sags, your tarp also sags.

    Most people tie their tarp directly to the trees. The keeps the tarp taught the whole night. Plus you can set it up first in the rain and stay dry.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?
