    When I am in my yard, without quilts, I like laying on a diagonal. However, when I am in the woods with quilts and all, I do not angle myself. I don't know why but I just lay on my side a little and I am way more comfortable.

    Also +1 on the pillow. It makes life way better.

    I also have a question about ridge lines, how do you know how long to make it?

    The WBBB comes with the ridgeline installed, so no length adjustment is necessary.

    If you want to add a structural ridgeline, the general consensus was that for most people, a ridgeline at 83% the length of the hammock is ideal for comfort.

    My ridge line is tight but can be moved easily with a finger. The way I understand this is the way its supposed to be. I need to practice some more to figure out the proper set up. The ridge in the fabric is the worst. I appreciate everyones input.

    yep. If a structural ridgeline is 'guitar string' tight then it's too tight- see shugs videos. Should be able to twist about 90* when unloaded and about 45* while in the hammock - if i remember correctly (pushing up on it with your thumb while pushing down with RL gripped in your fist).

    Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
    The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
    while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."
