    OMG HOG user for life

    I just got my new HH explorer deluxe and I couldn't be more happy and cumphy. And just a side note the asym tarp is actually a lot larger than they look. But one thing that mine didn't come with" since mine came with whoopies" are the tarp tieouts that you clip the hooks that are on the tarp to. So what should I use to hook the tarp to the hammock suspension?

    Get yourself some thin cord with some type of very small hook on it- like a mitten hook - and make a Prussick knot:

    You may need more loops to grip those slippery Whoopies.

    Many people prefer to attach the tarp to the trees. You will get a much tighter pitch this way. The original HH way, when the hammock sags the tarp will sag and become loose and floppy/noisy. You will need to rig up some stout elastic tensioners- or hang weighted stuff sacks from the mitten hooks at the tarp side tie out- to minimize this.

    But if you tie the tarp to the trees, have it as close as possible to the hammock ridgline. And tie the tarp on the tree lower than the hammock tree saver starps. Because when the hammock sags but the tarp does not, you might find yourself quite exposed to any side ways rain.

    Oh, congrats on the comfy hammock!

    Is this an HHSS over cover? Me, I just lift the OC up and sit down. This is not recommended by HH, and you do need to be careful not to put too much tension on anything, but it was never any problem for me. YMMV, and be careful when 1st trying this out.

    Other than that, you are going to rig up some kind of connector where you can connect it and disconnect. Should not be hard.
