    In reply to ?1, is say put an SRL and play with your angle.
    Play with what you have. My wife gave me a Grand Trunk single for fatherday. I love it but it got better when I put an Srl on. Then woopie slings.

    The GTUL gets a little better with a SRL, but for me (6'1") it is still impossible to get a good diagonal lay. I just upgraded to a GT Double, but won't get to test it until tomorrow night... In theory the added length and width should make a diagonal lay much easier to acheive. I also added whoopies and a ASRL to the Double.

    Ok first sleep last night. I had trouble laying flat, even though I was diagonal. I'm guessing I had too much sag. That would do it, right?

    I think it looks great, and the most important part is just getting out, I think all the other stuff comes with experience and hanging out on HF.

    For some reason can only get 1photo posted. Special thanks to Dutch for the Dutch flyz to hold the tarp up. Thank you so much

    Hello, I just got into hammock camping towards the end of last summer. I bought a grand t ultra light, a Byer of Maine easy travel hammock, and made an attempt at a DIY gathered end with rip stop I found at Wally World. First impressions were that I have definitely been bitten by the hammock bug. I have a long way to go, however, before I can, get set up and comfortable in under a half hour with any consistency. I also am not crazy about having one side of my body pushed a little higher than the other on the wall side of the hammock. I am laying on the diagonal but wonder if I'm doing something wrong here. I'm not sure if getting a WBBB would solve this, with the foot box, or if I just need to get better at adjusting the suspension so that there is the right amount of sag.

    So after all that, here is my question(s): 1) if having my feet touch and one side pushed up bothers me, is this something that can be overcome with better hammocks (ie wbbb or others with a foot box) or will I just be marginally more comfortable and still asymmetrically posed

    2) if you we're new and still trying to figure out if this is for you, and wanted to give winter hanging a go, would you recommend getting a WBBB, and getting by with pad for bottom insulation and regular sleeping bag for top insulation until you could save up for underquilt, or would you recommend I get better at using what I have and spend the money on the underquilt?

    Sorry for the giant explanation. I really appreciate any suggestions you have for me.

    Thanks,
    Tim

    After I got bit by the hammock bug I just jumped in a bought a WBBB and I love it! So comfortable!

    Just my $.02.
