I'm new to this forum and to hammocks. I live in Tokyo, but I grew up in the Southern California desert. Tokyo is pretty insane/busy most of the time, but there are some really beautiful areas for hiking and camping not to far to the west of the city. I try to get out there as much as I can for day hikes and occasional camping. I have been using a lightweight tent so far but I would like to change that real soon!
I found this site after deciding to DIY. Originally I wanted to buy a Hennessy Hammock, but discovered their shipping costs to Tokyo are ridiculously high! I have searched for local sellers, but no luck. After a Google search, I found this site, just what I was looking for!
My plan is to build a Black Bird clone using the plans found here. I still need to purchase a thread injector and the materials, but I'm making progress there.
Anyone else in the Kanto area??
