    I set up my ridgeline above the tarp so I think I will be good to go..
    As I understand it, the leaks form from the tarp being cocked to the wrong side angle due to the rl being under the tarp?..
    We would be one step closer to world peace, if everyone slept in a hammock..

    I just reread this thread.http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=58356
    I see what your saying about how the seam sits. I'm still gonna apply another seal. I just like to play it safe. Wet down equals unhappy camper. Happy Hangin!

    I too plan to hang the tadpole under the ridge line using prusiks. I won't be able to test until tomorrow or Sunday. Anyhow, please let us know how it goes.

    I wish I could report that I slept like a baby; however, sleep did not come to me in my hammock, so there was no "breakfast in me hammock" this am. It all started out fine taking a while to figure how to negotiate my mummy bag into the hammock; with that done, laying diagonally I was very warm and cozy.Just great night to be out, maybe 40 degree. My pootch soon hopped in and went straight to sleep adding additional warmth. Yet, I was not so cumfy. I'm a side-sleeper and also a back-sleeper, so I'm on the move a bit of the night trying to get that "just right". With each move I get various pressure points from the hammock; shoulders, knees etc. readjusting the rig with each move. Around 3 am I decided some sleep was better than none so I baled for my bed. Even with a rough night I'm convinced that a hammock is the way to go, and I need to re-tool my gear to make it work. I'll be shopping for a top quilt, as the mummy bag is just too confining. All in all it was a great learning experience.

    Welcome to the club Wiel!
    Most i know do not make the entire first night (or few).
    As Shug says, "hiking all day makes hammock sleep easier", or something like that.

    For me, took three nights - adjusting and swapping gear- before sleeping through. Now, after a half-dozen group hangs, sleep like a baby.

    On that point. Group hangs have been an invaluable resource for learning and for new friends. Hope you can attend one.

    Loki, I sure hope your correct. Always hopeful, and enjoying the process.

    I need a net. Hanging in a cypress swamp and the skeeters aren't very friendly.

    ETA: Here's where I was hanging this weekend.
