Well, I joined this forum a month ago just to find out a little more info on hammocks since my daughter decided she'd like to sleep out in one on our next camping trip.
So far the things I've built/made from instructions on this forum are;
3 gathered end hammocks with 1.9 ripstop from joanns (on sale 50% off)
6 whoopie slings from amsteel (hadn't even heard of amsteel before)
1 bug screen
1 portable hammock stand (just finished this morning)
For another 6 months, I'm still in Southern CA in the middle of the city (as you can tell by the photo) but soon we're moving to some property in Oklahoma where I can see these getting a lot of use...
I've also been introduced to the youtube antics of shug which as a fellow juggler I have to say that's one funny guy..
