    Still being a noob (a dozen trips or so), this chart really helps bring the optimal hang into perspective.

    This one is a little more techincal than your others, but you have a gift for really simplifying concepts with pictures. Another great illustration!

    great illustration. picture is worth 100 words. can picture this being printed on a bandanna.
    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.

    Very nice graphic!

    All the info one needs, distilled into a simple guide. And yes, a bandanna seems like a good idea.

    So, based on the chart, if you don't find the optimal tree spacing, then hang a little below 6' on the tree if that spacing is shorter than 15', and try to hang higher than 6' on the tree if the spacing is greater than 15' - would that be correct?

    Great work dejoha.

    Was this one of the more difficult hammock illustrations for you to conceptualize?

    You got it, that would be correct!! Then if you go too far apart you need to use your trekking pole or a branch or something to push the hugger up higher than you can reach!
