    Where do you get the elephant trunks from?
    I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I've brought a big bat. I'm all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!

    Ah! I see, you keep your straps attached to the hammock.
    Around the tree clip your done.

    I guess it depends on the type of hammock strap one uses.
    On my WBBB with just straps I make a loop and poke it thru the sewn loop and insert a stick.
    On my SB with TS and whoopies I just feed the tree strap thru the sewn loop.

    On my WBBB i use the webbing and buckles... for this setup i use a carabiner because i don't have to disconnect the webbing from the hammock.

    on my diy hammock i use whoopies and a marlin spike hitch. because the webbing isn't connected to the hammock i just thread it through the sewn eye rather than use a carabiner.

    its all about the convenience. the 2-3 extra ounces never really bugged me.
    I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I have not lived.
