- Mar 24, 2008Thanks Rick, that is helpful. Now, and again bear (oh no, not bears!) with my newness, I have looked at Hennesey (sp?) brand. Others I should consider? I sure appreciate the input from y'all rather than the input from the school of hard knocks. Been to that class way too often.

Two hammocks set up so that the head end of each hammock is tied to the
same tree and the feet are spread by 5-8 feet works out nicely. That
way sweet nothings can be whispered and the two are within touch
distance. I have also set up two hammocks using two wide trees with the
hammocks tied so that the ends are at the width of the tree. I suppose
that it would be possible to lash a cross brace on two trees, though I
have not tried that.
