    Neo (the one here) will have a hang-out in October that several of us plan to attend. It wouldn't be that far of a drive for you, so I hope you can attend. The two of you can compare movies .

    I have two tie outs for the hammock and then 2 more for the corners of the Tarp going to the same stakes. The others you see "hanging" are because the tarp is made to use with or without the hammock and so has additional tie outs for ground use (heaven forbid).

    I actually have created a new hex to go with this hammock. It has 2 on each side, so it's really dangerous.

    If there is a better way please let me know...I am here to learn.

    That's the way my Scout gets tied out, 2 for the hammock and 4 for the hex tarp. It worked well at the hang-out. Messing with Ewker is just a collateral benefit of the method, not designed in but a fun feature to discover.

    New Tarp for the Pseudo HH

    I tried to read the CatCut thread like three times...then chickened out and built a hex.

    nice looking tarp thereisnospoon.
    i kinda like the way the ridge line runs...strait except for the upward curve near each end.
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!

    I didn't design that, it just happens that the way I have it tied out created that little swoop. Does provide a lot of coverage. I haven't weighed it yet, but it felt like 10-12oz at most.

    Once again I say thanks, y'all have been very helpful. Where/when is the hang out(info link?)

    neo's hangout

    neo will announce it nearer to the time, I'm sure. He said early October, I'm pretty sure. He has a place that is free to camp, somplace on the Nachez Trace I think. However, I'm going from memory, and he is the one who is organizing it. Just keep an eye out in the group happenings area.

    There is also a hang-out at Hot Springs, NC in September. Someone else will have to provide the link to that as I just today joined the hammock email list that is run by the guy who organizes that one. I went to the one there in June and it was a lot of fun.
