I bought a byer hammock, made a hammock tube, underquilt and windshield. Hooked it up to two good strong trees sat in it and sunk straight to the ground like I was on a bungee jumping machine. I was using 1" nylon webbing I bought from REI. I think the problem is that I should use Polyester webbing so that it will not stretch. I used regular rope and all was well in that set-up.
I'm glad no one was watching, it was pretty funny in retrospect.
So what is the collective opinion on what to use?
