    I stand by my original statement, except for misspelling set-up, that there is a set-up that is right for everyone.

    However, I did not say how many set-up's you would have to go through before you found the right one. Luckily, for me and my pocketbook, it has, so far, been two. But, I do reserve the right the try other rigs and change my mind at any time.

    Just joshing with ya ... there's so much fiddle factor (fun) involved with hammocks ... hard to ever have one set-up! Least ways that's been my experence! Got straps, buckles, whoopies and if someone comes out with an edible version ... that goes good with barbeque sauce I might give that a try!

    I agree, as with all my hobbies, trying out new stuff is half the fun.

    How about beef jerky suspension straps with a teriyaki dipping sauce?

    Hey, Red. Always glad to see another NC hanger join the group! Shug's videos are great as are Just Jeff's website and Sgt. Rock's website. It's lots of fun tinkerin' with your set up and daydreaming (in your hammock of course) about how to make it better! Welcome!!!
