In celebration of having my account name changed to my trail name (formerly known as rreevestmmk), my first official thread as the "Aardvark"....
Wanted a test bed for hammock materials, and a way to hang at Scouting outings in open fields.... my target was a non-back breaking center beam and a footprint no bigger than a normal tent.
As the vidoe shows, I can go from Deployed with Hammock, fold up for transports, then completely redeploy and have hammock hanging in under 6 minutes.
This isn't ultralight, but it does fold down and truck transport well (also can get in my Camry if rear seats folded down, but don't tell my wife)
Google Sketchup model, I modified a bit from original, wood is same dimensions:
and the album the rest of the photos are in:
