Time to place your bets. I have my homemade test hammock setup outside for the first time. It is $1 bin ripstop whipped Warbonnet style. My first sewing project. I tried it out indoors last night and the suspension pulled through the whipping twice before I managed to get it tied securely. I had a lot of stretching.
I am tied between two hopefully solid trees about 16 inches (1.6 deciinches for you metic people). All suspension is nylon until I get around to ordering some poly webbing. How long until I hit the ground?
New information, heavy winds and rain in the forecast.
