readjustments need to be made at times & sometimes it may be after the
hammock apeared to be the way you wanted & you have already done a
nice job of securing the tree huggers. this is probably even more true
of a hammock w/o a ridgline to set the sag for you. what i`m hoping
for is a dependable,lightweight way to fine tune the hammock after
it`s hung w/o undoing the tree huggers. i think thers got to be a way
to do this w/o adding much more than 3 or 4 ozs to my pack. and if so
i`ll gladly carry that burden for the convenince it provides.
a while back david/bear (i think) was sharing his use of 2 rings,
forming a sort of buckle (like`s on some belts). it was working for
him, but i never came up w/ the right combonation to grip the webbing.
i wonder if marie noel (hope i spelled that right) was trying to
discribe something like that? ...slowhike
