here is a list off stuff I want, and hopefully can find:

hammock material, either taffeta or ripstop and either nylon or polyester. colors: forest green, tan, coyote brown.

weather shield set, top and bottom. If 1.4 oz poly ripstop is a bad hammock would use this for shield. will get from jeff, once the money comes...

tarp, leaning to the SG 9x9

Ed's hammock camping book. since I dont plan on ordering anything from him as of now.

thats it so far. thge rest I can find from online, like OWF or is stores. Cant wait to make my own headessy clone.

Ed Speer's Hammock Supply page (http://www.speerhammocks.com/Products/Supplies.htm) sells Chocolate Brown 1.9 ripstop (hammock material), which is really close to Coyote Brown (imo).

r.e. chocolate brown from Speer. Nice color. I've built 3 hammocks and a sock using it. Snoop around my gallery to see what the color is like. Wish I could find a source for a color like it in sil, as JRB and HH have found for their stuff.

hm, looks rather nice, lighter then I thought. that, the bugnet, hm... still I am hoping for a tan hammock, I like HC4U in the 7th page of his HH clone.

That was some 1.9oz I scored from the WalMart 1.00 bin. I didn't buy all of it because I didn't know what to use it for, so I just bought enough to make a hammock. I wish I had gotten the whole bolt of fabric now. I really like the color. You may check Quest Outfitters (http://www.questoutfitters.com/uncoated_fabrics.htm#1.9%20UNCOATED%20RIPSTOP) as they have a varity of colors to choose from and the tan (golden) color may be a good match to the color I used.

Well, if you ever find the "mother lode", please keep us informed (after you've bought as much as you want, of course)... :p

please do... I had wanted forest green sil, but the brown is also nice, so either for me :)

as for the brown from speer, i may go that way. it is so cheep (the netting too), only more expensive then walmart $1/yd.

Too bad JRB or Hennessy doesn't sell silnylon by the yard. They'd make a bloody fortune.

Yes, but Ed only sells black or gray. I wonder if he would be interested in selling green and brown.

I spoke to him some time ago. He is not planning to stock other colored sil.
