- Feb 2, 2005Good story J.D.
A couple comments. If the hammock seems too short, tie one end 6
inches higher than the other. Head goes at low end. It will not
really change the sleeping angle much, but it will shift your bottom
toward the head end by about 6 inches and give you lots more room.
When temperatures are cold (usually very very cold) I take my winter
jacket and use it as a pad for my lower legs between the layers of the
double bottom. That helps with cold spots a whole lot.
I often lie about a third on one side, with my face against one side
or the other and my hips shifted toward one side, but without actually
being on my side. It is a comfortable way for me to sleep. When I
first tried sleeping on my side, I found that the side of the upper
knee hurt. Crossing my feet seemed to take away that tenderness.
Yes, putting the tarp up does keep the frost from forming on the
hammock. It might make you much happier.
You might want to take a look at my overlap pad, It keeps knees and
shoulders much warmer than any other method I have found short of the
