    SIERRA MADRE SOLO

    SO I was generously gifted a Solo by a member here, and I hadnt had a chance to try it out. Yesterday I took it to the park and hung it, and rehung, and rehung.....you get the picture. A few hours later I still hadnt found the sweet spot. I was aggravated and ready to try to sell it so I could get a different netless hammock for days at the park or the lake where simplicity. I had made a post on Facebook on Hammock forum there, and was asking about how morally sound my idea was.

    Into the discussion pops Barry Garibaldi from Sierra Madre!! He offered me some tips and back to the park I went to try to get a better lay! Still I had no luck. I was a bit disappointed because this is a pretty nice hammock. I loved the material but I was ready to write it off as too small for me.

    Anyway, come to find out, Barry just lives 4 hours from me. He was looking for a nice ride on his bike and said he was available today! Barry rode up and in under 15 minutes he has me back in the Solo and COMFORTABLE!!!

    I have never met as many wonderful people as the people that belong to the hammock community!

    I am completely humbled at the heart of everyone I have met!!!!

    Thank you Barry!!!

    Wow thatís pretty cool of him to do.

    What do you think he did different in the setup than you were doing? Was he using the same trees you were trying on before or did that. It matter?

    Used the same trees. He pushed my straps higher on the trees and dropped my hammock lower on the suspension. I had put that thing in a million positions. I couldnt get the right amount of sag. He ended up sticking a ridge line on it so I can find that spot every time now
