    Hello from the Welsh Marches

    Just introducing myself. I've only just bought a DD Travel hammock, not used in anger yet, so I'm a hammock-vigin. Been practising in the garden and decided to get the whoopie slings and sleeve. Looking fwd to using the hammock out in the wild early next year.

    Looking fwd to meeting you all and learning things

    Welcome from Aus.
    Used in anger
    Same weapon, it's all good.
    I converted mine to whoopies and tree huggers as well, think it's much better.
    I'm still playing with the hang. DD says taut, common wisdom say 30 degrees.
    Somewhere in between works for me HYOH ( hang your own hang).

    Aah!!!
    I made some tree straps from some stiff and thick polyester webbing sewn with a Speedy Stitcher. The look awful, however they do function.

    I'd completely forgotton I have both original straps left over from the whoopie conversion that I can use, that are softer and lighter.

    Some say they stretch a lot, but I hadn't noticed when they were on.
    I'll make a spare or replacement set from those straps, thanks for jarring my memory.

    Nick from DD intimated in an email 2 months ago that there had been an awful lot of rain. Stay safe and dry. I guess be careful that the tree's rootballs aren't waterlogged and the trees don't move on you. Theories this happens exist on the Forum, on very very very rare occasions. Just pick bigger tree's I guess.
