Same way. The Speer and all of my variants of it sleep across the
diagonal to be reasonably flat. When I first started sleeping on my
side, one of my knees hurt a little. Crossing my feet removed that pain.
When I look at photos of us in these hammocks, they look like we are
bananas. However, the experience laying/sleeping across the diagonal is
that it feels flat. There is a nice sweet pocket for the feet off to
either side of the middle in the Speer hammock. Finding this foot
pocket is the secret to sleeping on the diagonal.
