    Went pretty well

    Sorry for the slow reply, just now had time to log in....

    I slept pretty good, I learned that I had a little too much sag on the hammock, with no pad or under quilt, I just stuffed some clothes I would normally have along on a trip in the under pockets. My upper body stayed warm, my legs from the knees down to my feet got a little cold. Woke up this morning no aches or pains.

    For tonight I flattened the hammock a little more & will wear wool socks & use a little warmer bag... gotta get my lay right & make a ridge line, will be using it for 4 days next weekend in Nebraska.

    Awesome! Glad it was a good night. I had too much sag with my Lite Owl one night. It wrapped my legs up...like a taco.
    A few more nights with.an adjustable RL fixed it. Good luck tonight. I def jealous that your out under the stars.

    Glad you had a good hang last night. Hope it goes better tonight.

    Hope it works out warmer for you. You might try a half inflated pad for your feet, or a pillow as a temporary fix.

    Happy camper but some questions???

    Happy Easter....

    I woke up in the hammock this morning to the sounds of loons, song birds, owls & turkeys gobbling... 29 deg. last night & I stayed warm & cozy all night, don't think I will spend much time sleeping in a tent again... money well spent!!!

    Now need to tie a ridge line (what knot do I use? )

    Need to order some whoopie slings or strap & buckle (decisions whats best??)

    Need to order some amsteel blue for tarp ridge line (Best place to order ?)

    Great morning, I have the kids easter baskets & eggs hidden already

    Siberian hitch on the first end, tarp hitch on the other (or an adjustable grip hitch). Same ones as in the Ray Mears Tarp Routine video. Truckers hitch is fine too but you can actually pull too tight if you're not careful.

    Happy Easter!

    I'd suggest whoopie slings. For your tarp ridgeline I'd suggest 1.75 Zing-it. You can order it from Dutch or any number of our wonderful vendors.

    I'm jealous. I was planning on hanging last night but got scared off by the dropping temps. Wish I had manned up now!
    Maybe you'll inspire me later today after the inlaws head out to pitch my kit and give it a go.
    Have a great Easter.
