Correct can't hang a hammock with a bungie cord.
My scouts went camping last night.
6 scouts, 5 dads, 3 leaders, 12 hammocks 1 tent
I was in my HH the rest of the hammocks were risk test hammocks with sheet
bend and diagonal blue tarps.
It rained most of the night!!
Everybody slept warm and dry!!
Most of the hammocks were made with poly strapping (one with mule tape) All
4 hammocks were made with nylon strapping, the two kids that slept in them
the two dads that tried to sleep in them had to retie in the middle of the
night because they (slowly ) hit the ground.
As the group here predicted I had invented bungee hammocking.
One inch nylon has to much stretch to be used for an adult hammock.
