New way to hang:
Got bored today and set up a hammock the way I've wanted to for a while. I like the occasional nap in my Suburban at lunch. Yeah, you know where I'm going with this. I took an inexpensive Stansport and hung it up using the rear door upper latch loop and the Oh poop! bar on the passenger side. I'm going to machine a stronger bracket for above the door and install some quick disconnects. I hung in it for a spell and fell asleep as planned. This should work really well for those times I just gotta get out of the city and am too lazy to set up my Hennessy. Here's a couple of quick pics. It started to rain pretty good and I didn't feel like getting wet for the sake of a few pics. Enjoy!
The extra line is the old line from my Hennessy that I added to this one for my son to use. I'll give him his hammock back once I go and get me one like it to keep in the Burb. This was just a trial run to see if it worked so don't rag on me too bad on this particular set up. LOL.
Hilarious! I love it! Thanks for the pictures!
Are you kidding me? Why would anyone on this forum think of ragging on you for pics like that?? I think it's awesome myself.
Problem is I could never do it cause I'd never get back into work from lunch.
Throw in some freshly cut spruce boughs, crack the window a bit and you can experience the "Piney Woods" in the comfort of your garage!!!!
You've even got firewood and a cooler going on in there!!!! Dude!!!
Use it as an emergency "sanity recharger".
I like it!
Pretty cool! As spacious as it is, you should see Old Gringo's mobile condo. I sure like the idea of hanging in the truck :D Great way to catch a few Z's while on the road.
Thanks Y'all! After I machine the permanent brackets and such, I plan on putting in some storage and what not. It's my commuter/ camping rig. The idea of a 1 minute set up, a hard roof, and room to eat is growing on me. The less work I have to do to get set up, the more time I have to RELAAAAAXXXX and ENJOOOOY.
I'd like to get a cargo van someday and put a couple rings inside to hang from. I saw a documentary once about South American truck drivers that hung hammocks to the underside of their trailers and slept in them on the side of the road.
Maybe not UL...but you got a built in heater. BONUS!
..it rains in Oregon :confused::rolleyes::lol:
Just a little bit.:lol:
