I joined this forum to get some tips on building a hammock for my wife and I to camp in. She's never really camped properly before (it was just a big party where they slept in tents) but I've done it all my life. I like tenting for the most part, except I'm not a fan of how they turn into an oven in the morning, so I thought I'd try hammocks.
2 days ago I bought 36 yards of ripstop nylon so we can make 2 hammocks, two tarps and two full length underquilts, and then this morning I had a bunch of alpaca wool delivered for the underquilts (I'm allergic to down). We're going to try to have everything done by the end of the week as we're heading out to Vancouver Island on Saturday :eek:
I'm looking forward to reading everyone's tips and learning as much as possible.
