I take it you are just going to ignore the cat, beagle and DAM envy
comments? Heck, I put a lot of thought into those. <grin>
About your toes touching the top of your adventure racer, seems like
that could be one or a combination of several factors: (1) You didn't
raise the foot end of your hammock enough to position yourself
forward enough in your hammock. And/or (2) the DAM raises you up a
little too high in your smallish hammock. And/or (again) (3) you are
just too big for the adventure racer.
