    I would't worry about waking up to that falling feeling with slack in your rope. I fell out off a treestand several years ago while bowhunting. I would sit on the platform till my butt got tired then I would sit on a limb about the size of the small one the head end of your hammock is fastened to because I had forgotten my stool. I grabbed that limb and was standing up when everything went. Still don't know if the limb went first or the stand. It was amazing how fast I hit the end of the safety strap I was wearing. Now I wear a full body harness. Talk about getting jarred out of a deep sleep. Looks like a blast to do though. Have fun ! That's what it's all about right.

    Nice set up, sir. I enjoy your reports and will be looking forward to more from you.

    Could you suspend a tarp over you using the same supports as your bridge hammock uses to connect to the tree? Would there be too much give like with a gathered end?

    Where do you attach your safety line?

    Agreed, sortof. Your deerstand ropes I assume are dynamic because they are meant to catch a fall. Falling onto these lines is thrilling to say the least! However arborist ropes are static and falling onto one can break bones or even kill you because there is no stretch in the rope.

    Safety line is anchored at the top of the tree which gives me full access to the lower branches. I used a gathered end hammock at first and they are too wiggly to easily get in and out of.


    I have decided to make a large post with all my canopy camping links and all of the details for each different hammock that I used. I think this will greatly help with anyone interested in the subject. So stay tuned.

    that's wild, but my mind keeps going back to one of the first sayings i learned from this site,,, don't hang higher than your willing to fall.

    Great pics!

    I'm pretty sure that must be Guiness book of World records worthy in the category of "highest bridge hammock ever hung".

    I'll enjoy this vicariously, thank you.
