18463tying off a Speer hammock
- Dec 6, 2007I really like the simplicity of Ed's "4 wrap" knot. So easy to tie!
However, sometimes the tree I need to tie to is too large for sufficient
What to do? I didn't want to tie a knot that would be impossible to
untie in the morning.
So I used the hammock webbing to tie one loose overhand knot around the
tree and finished
it off with figure 8 wraps a la Hennessey. Worked perfectly, plus it
allowed me to adjust
the height of the hammock on the tree.
