    Have you been trying to sleep on your back? If so, have you tried putting something under your knees? Just for while you await arrival of the WBBB?
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Thanks for the advice.

    The issue is I'm a hardcore side sleeper. I can't seem to stay on my back. In the Byers I keep sliding to the center-line in my sleep no matter where I start out. This stresses my hips at an odd sideways angle. I'm so sore in the morning I can barely hike back. I've been looking at this for over a month. I have a couple of crazy ideas. 1. I think the hammock is just too narrow for me. 2. I also think I could fix a lot of the issues if I "tuned " the hammock's pitch and hang e.g. suspension tweaks and adding a structural ridge line. . However, after a lot of research it looks like the Byers has a steep learning curve when it comes to tweaking with the pitch to get it just right. I am hoping the WBBB will be better for side sleeping out of the box once I find the sweet spot.

    Sadly, I have sometime before I can try out the WBBB I am on a project that will suck up all of my spare time for at least a month. The good news is that by that time I won't need to even think about an under quilt here in Houston.
