    Doors 4 eva! Same reasons as others. I can pull them back when not needed. When weather comes along, they are wonderful to have. The extra weight is not a consideration for me.

    Sometimes I sleep best laying on my left side. I usually just wiggle around until it feels right. My head usually ends up close to the left edge of the hammock, and my feet/butt somewhere just to the...

    That tarp looks great! Really like that doorway pole mod with the clip. And the d-rings for internal ridgeline. And the double d-rings on the tie-outs.

    I could be wrong, but I think the tarp length generally refers to the length of the ridgeline. I haven't measured all of my 3 tarps, but I have measured my DIY 12' tarp. It has a 12' ridgeline on...
