    "Drip lines"?- are a/any way to divert the water in/on your lines to the ground before it reaches something you don't want wet; webbing straps used with the descender rings, a half-hitch with a tail just before a tri-glide, even an absorbent string tied to the amsteel whoopies, just under the edge of the tarp- all these provide a steep descent for the water to run down before they get into your hammock and sleeping stuff. Hope that helped a bit, sorry no videos of my own to give you, KM

    What kind of suspension are you using?

    I have whoopie slings. I take the fixed end and loop it over itself, like a half-hitch, just under the tarp near the end of my hammock. Being under the tarp is important.

    All you are trying to do is give the water a more direct route to the ground and gravity will take care of the rest. Your suspension coming down at an angle, a drip line coming off it leading straight down is all that's happenin'!

    Shug's video's for noobs and what not shows this. I think no#6 or 7. http://www.youtube.com/user/shugemer...53/0GQFuhtlaAE
