      Thanks, Ralph. I'll look it up.

      Careful, they will make you turn in your duct tape.... :]

      Amsteel is a super rope that is ultra light weight, google it.

      Or get some of the Mule tape that was offered here.
      A couple of 20 foot lengths with loops tied or sewed into each end.
      (use a water knot or a double double figure eight)

      Wrap around trees as needed to get the spread needed then tie your
      hammock to the straps or Amsteel with a hefty knot or 'biner. No
      modification of the hammock.

      While you are at it look up whoopie sling for an instantly infinitely
      adjustable hanging system.

      Hang tuff, hang tight

      Ralph
