      I've been using the standard Hennessey set up, but unlike most Hennessey
      users, I don't set it up tight. I hang it as though it were a
      no-ridge-line hammock with lots of flop and sag. I'm guessing the angle
      is 40 or more degrees hanging down from horizontal. I use the Hennessey
      tree-huggers (1" wide) wrapped once around the tree (most of the trees
      have dbh >30 cm. I weigh about 200 lbs.

      If you saw my earlier email, then you know I'm following the 'long-term'
      effects of a one-night hang on /Cryptomeria japonica/. It's long-term
      in that I want to know how long it will take before I cannot tell that I
      hung the hammock there.
