      don't know for sure, but seems like you'd have to use some pretty heavy duty rope to handle the weight/forces.  along a similar line, i've been wondering if you could just use a lighter piece of rope between the ends of the hammock.  ie still establishing a consistent distance between the ends and a consistent hang, but still use the straps/ropes that you already use.

      I think its about time i introduced myself. My name is Brett, i'm 26 and have been using a hammock for camping for a season although i've only made it out about 4 times. I have tried it in snowy cold weather as well as summer time with success. I usually hike the AT around Ny/CT/Mass .

      My question is if anyone has hung their hammock from a single rope tied between two trees with two pre-measured loops tied in the rope. I have thought of this idea but have not tried it out. My thought is that you could determine how far apart you preferred your hammock ends to be for the slope or curve of your liking and then you could tie your loops at that distance and just tie the rope to the tree with your hammock below this rope hanging from those two loops. this would keep your hammock hanging pretty much the same way despite the distance between the trees you find.

      If this topic or detailed hanging technique has been spoken about feel free to send me to the right location; as i know much has been said about hanging technique.
