    Oh forgot to mention, dont forget your ridge line when packing up. I never did........ok,ok i did, i got to the van then realised id left it tied up still. Went back and discovered a couple of walkers looking up at it in awe as to wether it was some sort of sex swing for breeding squirells, or tightrope act. Anyhow it taught (excuse the pun) to be more vigilant in future as regards the line. Mac

    Far better than my first attempt! It involved the hammock breaking me rolling doown a hill and waking up to not know where the heck I was!

    Good luck on your next attempt.

    Hi there
    Glad you're enjoying your new kit.. I have a similar set up and have forgotten my ridgeline on a couple of occasions when setting it up like you did. I now use the tarp set up in this link : http://www.louisecainphotography.co....nd_hammock.pdf I find it quicker and easier to set up and it packs away smaller.
    I find also if you hank the corner guys on each side together, instead of individually it is easier to fold....
    cheers
