    Welcome to the suspension side.

    You should just go ahead and visit the Dutch...sooner or later you will want to anyway. I have the WBBB adjustable webbing that suits me perfectly and am looking at the Dutch Whoopie Hook and Buckle just because.
    Mark is the name and If there is more than one way to understand what I just said....I meant the good one.

    +1 to what my neighbor Bondo said. You can buy tree straps at REI or the local version and there are a few Whoopie Sling tutorials on this site.

    Here is one example-

    Happy Trails to one and all.
    Enjoy the outdoors wisely and elevate your perspective.

    Welcome aboard!

    You may need some bigger straps for those redwoods
    When it seems like the night will last forever
    And there's nothing left to do but count the years
    When the strings of my heart start to sever
    And stones fall from my eyes instead of tears
    I will walk alone by the black muddy river
    And dream me a dream of my own
    -Jerry
