think) where I was looking up at the solid fabric and when I turned
my head, I was looking down through the no-see-um netting. The good
news is that nothing tore or broke or anything. I pushed my feet up
(!) through the slit and pulled them over & down to stand up. Simple
matter to spin it around the ridgeline and re-tie the hammock guy
lines. (Must have thrashed something serious in my sleep or tied
really bad knots.)
The first time I was sure I must have wrecked the thing. The other
two times I just got out and back in again. No sweat.
I'm about 180 and spend have a HH Ultralight A-Sym.
<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!

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.
