So, getting down to brass tacks.... Well, forget the brass tacks, lets talk RIDGELINES!
My incarnation of this suspension has an equilateral triangle, which measures 5" on each side. That connects to my suspension with a Dutch whoopie hook. I want to keep the ability to pack my suspension separately and also switch it among my hammocks.
I could run a ridgeline from whoopie hook to whoopie hook, but it would have to be another separate piece to keep up with and I would have to attach it each time I set up.
An alternative would be to have a fork in the ridgeline, located a few inches from each end, and permanently tie each end of the fork to the ends of the mini spreader bar.
I'm leaning toward the latter alternative. What are some other ridgeline ideas?
