    Whoopies are cool. But knots, for me, are good therapy

    I tie figure 8 knot and larkshead attach it to the hammock, twirl it around a biner a few times as an anchor, loop it around a MSH and back to the biner, ala Grizz video.
    I secure it with slipped buntline, like in Brandons line and strap suspension video.

    I figure by using those two guys advice, I can't go wrong. BTW, I don't use amsteel for my knots. I use spyderline.

    That is pretty brutal. Turn someone on to Shug videos anytime after midnight

    If David opened up even one of those, the next thing he'll see out the window will be daylight
