Its a four year old thread..?

Two words that should not be used in the same sentence...:jj:
Since shifting of the pad is the problem, why use stretch net material??
If you have a specific spot you like your pad, mark it out, and sew a dedicated pocket using your two layers. That will keep...
I believe its what your looking for as far as design.
Google "modern hammock bed" for more design images.
Fabric can be most anything as long as it doesn't have...
Mine came this week and I love it.
Thanks V_ for a great product for big guys/gals.
I had a few hours of playtime in my new hammock and it performed flawlessly. Flat lay, wide at the right areas....
:confused: Did the OP ask about hammock stands??:thumbdown:
Yes, you can rig a TARP and us your tires as anchors.
Your poles can be lengths of conduit, folding tent poles or wood 2x2's etc..And...
I 80 & hwy 183, (Exit# 257, Holdredge exit), turn south. ~1/2 mile. Theres a nice campspot on the Platte.
About 4 hrs from Scottsbluff.
Green bean belongs in the Hammock Hall of Fame.
A true legend.
I'm going to hug my hammock now. :crying
Hot, humid, rainy conditions.
Think of a cold glass of water on a humid day, and how it sweats. Your tarp is catching cool rain water, condensation happens and it appears to be leaking.
Stomp on the area where the stake goes.
These guys like tents...:laugh:
Seriously tho, some folks just fiddle. I've seen people set up in minutes. And I've seen folks look for an hour for two perfect trees. It wouldn't matter...
Netting needs support.
Internal rl. Supports the net and offers consistent sag (once set to your liking). Also a spot to hang a rl organizer.
Removable rl- Make a connecting point...
12.5' ?? That's REALLY long! Excessive fabric makes for a heavier hammock, bulkier to pack. 11' is the new length that most like. For years 10' was the norm. Each size has their own following. While...
I'll be stopping by for a test ride.
Did anyone else notice the hammock hanging on the window?! :scared::scared:
Trim off the grosgrain rl, and sew it back together using a flat felled seam. Not a total loss.
You will lose a few inches of coverage in all.
I'm swamped at work but when I get time I can whip two up.
Hang the hammock in the house.
In an urban area there is traffic, neighbors, dogs, etc. that are a constant distraction.
Also, being a new hammocker, the worry or thought about "am I doing it...
Thanks for keeping the Deep Lake hammock tradition alive and well. :cool:
Avoid the columns.
Hang from the rafters.
Your motto should be "keep it up".
Do squirrels or raccoons ever bother you while tree hanging? Bears?
With your food being hung nearby, I thought critters may be a concern?
It is more cutting and sewing. I've done it a few times. Structurally it doesn't seem to be an issue. Seam seal when the sewing is completed.
-Plant a big pole (wood or metal) that is buried deep enough to take the strain.
-Build a tripod, monopod or bipod and stake it out with LARGE long stakes. Or anchor to the base nearby...
Pointing the foot end of the tarp (with doors or beak) into the wind works great. Smaller surface area, allows for the head end to be left open for entry/exit/ventilation.
As far as you...
It makes a small uq. Adding a drawstring channel to the waist is best. Lightweight shock cord and cordlocks in the channel to seal out drafts.
It can work. But don't expect great result (I.e., sub...
Sorry to hear this Opie.
My thoughts are with you and yours.
Maz, really nice video.
What equipment did you use? (camera, etc.)
umm, the pad is stopping the air.
Hammock fabric is typically breathable. And thin (1.0 -1.9 oz/yd for hammock fabric is norm, .0.9 oz/yd for netting) so not really a significant difference.
This wouldn't hold the pad completely to the hammock. It will allow for gaps.
It'll depend on what type of gg. Several different materials, thicknesses, weaves, etc.
And how it is attached. Folded gg over a rolled hem, stitch length, thread used, base fabric, etc..
I can't believe you packed that table in. :D
Thanks for the video.
Your head is a ZOO...:lol:
Always pushing the envelope.
Thanks for the update.
You were at home with the convenience of a dryer. And you were not depending on your wet quilt to keep you warm.
Protect your gear and yourself when in the woods. The scenario could have been a lot...
There is no "idiot proof" machine.
They all take a learned set of skills. Proper threading, needle, speed, stitch length and tension all need to be mastered, over time.
Some machines you linked...
Often referred to as Claytor jungle hammock.
Shipping can be expensive. A good hammock, many used them.
Some better hammocks have come along.
Unhemmed, IMO, will fail. I would cut an 11' and sew small hem channels, bundle it and hang.
Then undo one end and sheetbend at 10'-6 ",etc.
But a sheet bend uses up fabric differently so you...
Don't cut it out. Just apply a good dose of sealer. Both in and out..as the others suggested.
Always seal after stitching is complete.
Sealing and then stitching just introduces new needle...
Contact the local liveries. They know the river best.
There is a national canoe event on the AuS. that draws a lot of people. It can get crowded that weekend.. Fun to watch the competition. Fast...
Pads do not breathe well, hence the sweaty feeling. Quick fix is to wrap your pad in fleece or similar soft fabric. That will give you more comfort for now. Many folks use a pad.
The first (you always remember) was an old army issued hammock, old school monster sleeping bag. Slept dry through many trips and backyard outings. Everything packed huge.
I drilled a small hole in the rafter before. Slid a continuous loop thru the hole larksheaded back onto itself, and hung from that loop.
Very discreet when the loop was removed. Leave enough wood...
Some bugs like certain colors over others.
Years back I had a bright blue stuff sack that would get swarmed by flies. Something about UV rays, associating color with food, etc.
I recently made a...
I just use the whoopie sling and larkshead that to hammock. No additional whipping needed.
Mule tape works. I have several set ups using it.
Is it as good for the tree vs. 1"? No. Is 1" as good as 2"? No. etc..
Obviously, the wider the strap, the better it is at dispersing the load...
Cut a hole, pull out some feathers. Problem solved!
Important question...Did you catch any fish??!
