    I use a mix kinda like Jwils. Lopsided W whipping on head and foot, with the corners pulled a bit, all held in a sheet bend. Works wonderfully.

    It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    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. - Randy Glasbergen

    WBBB is what I've used thus far. Will likely try another whipping on next project.

    I pull the corners and then use a modified sheet bend to tie it. Tried the W, and it was really comfy for side sleeping, but it felt to cut me in half for any other position. I never thought to try it for just one end though--just might have to give that a try .
    You're gonna need a bigger hammock
