You have to take into account Sgt Rocks height. I added the difference between his hight and moine when I made mine and it works well. It definitely hugs the shoulder a little but I kind of like it.
Solution!!!! Sleep in a TREE
Somebody here has a long ghost, as he is over 6'... my plan is a compromise between comfort and Sgt. Rock's fanaticism on weight... ( or is it a compulsion?) I am 5'11" and my plan is to make it 10'. I might whip it shorter just to see...
I'm 6'1" and I made mine to the same length as Sgt. Rock but a couple inches narrower and it still feels great to me. Certainly enough room. I sleep in the fetal position most of the time though, so that might have something to do with it.
