    I bought one from Hammock Gear, the 0* incubator, for my ENO Doublenest. I think they make some for the non-gathered end hammocks too. Might check them out and when I get mine I can put some pictures up if you want.

    Used my Hennessy while going south from Vancouver to San Diego on the Pacific Coast Highway, keeping to the surf. Still have it in Guatemala as I continue on to Argentina, but camping has been scarce since then, and have used my little tent. Considering mailing it back home, but I'm still in love with it. Will probably lug it around the world regardless of how much I use it.

    I have not seen anyone review the Lawson Blue Ridge Hammock. I own an ENO double nest and was looking for something of a hybrid and discovered the Lawson. Any feedback would be appreciated. ...:ear

    Our new place is a 3/4 acre but unfortunately only trees I have are two big pin oaks (3'-4' diameter) about 50' apart.

    Is my only option to build a stand, or have you guys ever rigged up chains or anything like that to trees this far apart?

    Any branches far apart enough in the same tree to hang? For one side I'd be tempted to put 2 eye bolts 180 deg apart from each other have an extra long piece of webbing to a caribeaner clip in the first side opposite to where I wanted it to come out and then wrap the webbing 540 degrees around the tree with a beaner to the 2nd eye bolt to keep it from dropping down and then somewhere to hook in 4' later or so...

    you could sink one post in the ground the proper distance form one of the trees....then just put a bird feeder on top and done.

    I'm having a very difficult time visualizing what you're asking here. But it sounds intersting.

    That could work, thanks for the tip.


    Yeah, that's the first thought I had but trying to avoid it just because it would look somewhat awkward in our situation. Thanks though.

    I've hung on trees at least 30' apart. I put the straps as high as I could get (probably 7' or so) and let my ridgeline work for me. You won't get the proper angle, but a structural ridgeline will give the the hammock the right sag. Could use a ladder to get even higher up the tree and if the trees have any branches low enough you could use them to shorten the hang.

    A quick calc in CAD says to get the appropriate 30 degrees at 50' separation you'd have to hang the straps 15.5' up the tree.. :lol3 You could get away with less with a structural ridge line.

    I have a wbbb, so it has a ridge line built in. I could get a ladder and get pretty high up the trunk, but I honestly have no idea what i'd use that is that long....

    I think I've almost got it covered in my normal setup. I have an 11 foot hammock' two 6 foot whoopie slings and two 12 foot webbing pieces. Granted that's 47 feet without going around a tree. :lol3

    Just add more webbing. :deal. it'll be an interesting hang to say the least.
