ditched myself on the ground a few times while getting the knack of it.
Also, as David observes, I'm in an Explorer Deluxe. Such a maneuver may not
be possible in a smaller hammock, or in the ED with a much larger user.
<snort> Not nearly as hard as I will the first time I get to do it! Of course, that will be after the initial shock of finding myself asleep on the roof of my hammock wears off ROTFL!
Abnormality is THE normality at this locality

Dunno or I wouldn't have done it twice more. I figure I probably
rolled over a couple or few times over the course of the night. I
like starting to fall asleep on my back until I'm just dropping off
when I roll over onto my side. I think I roll back on my back during
the night and then back on my side. If the roll is violent enough
it's possible to yank the tie-out if I haven't done an appropriate
knot (the elastic doesn't really hold a taughtline hitch very well).
I'm gonna laugh my ass off when you do it the first time.
