Step 5: Tips on Using a Hammock
- Use a rope folded over into two with knots on the end. It is hard to explain so use the pictures as reference. These allow you to loop the rope around a tree and use the knots as a place to hook the hammock. This hanging system doesn't use complicated knots and is easy to set up and take down.
- Don't make the hammock too tight otherwise you will feel cramped. Allow it to sag a bit so you are more comfortable.
- Foam sleeping mats are also very helpful. They spread out the hammock and prevent you from getting cold from the air blowing under your hammock.
