My name is stuart I'm from Northamptonshire, England.
I have been hanging for almost 2 years.
My first hammock was a net that was reduced to £2 in a local supermarket.
It was bought for a Joke for a fellow scout leader ( Big Jake, 300 lb monster )
He refused to even try it so I slept in it that night. I was amazed it was quite comfy. The following morning after all the scouts had tried it we shamed the big fella into trying it out, what a laugh we had watching him get in it and then promptly fall straight through it !
Since then I have experimented with home made hammocks
and now use a Tenth Wonder Green Hornet.
