    It just slides away

    I have pretty much converted to hammock sleeping full time, three weeks now, and I am using my Baby orca on my 65" wide DIY hammock. I like the temp it keeps me in my room. it get down to about 40* in there some times. So its perfect not hot mostly not cold. However if I roll over to sleep from one side to the other side the UQ will flip completely away and off of my back I don't realize till am already snuggled. I have adjusted the bungies and indefinite number of times. Looser and tighter same thing. channels taught or open (i like open better). It also doesn't help that I went into the lake after my friends cell phone, so I am extra cold right now, the lake is about 40*

    Suggestions folks? I am going to try a safety pin tonight to keep it in place. on my DIY Hammock.

    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.
