Great information. Thanks!
I picked up a couple of 15 foot tow straps, 2" wide, that I use for under $10. I have whoopie slings, but a lot of times I will just start with a loop, then wrap the strap around each tree until I...
I ordered two last Friday. They were delivered yesterday (t0 the US from England). I have not yet had the chance to try it out, but it looks great and exactly what I wanted. Great company!
I like it. A great idea.
Sign me up!
Please include me 2,1,3.
Great work and these are fun to make.
Looks like a great setup. Thanks for the pictures.
Just stumbled across this video and thought it was quite interesting. using this concept, you can hang anywhere!
I'm in if these are still available.
I enjoy the wealth of information shared by others on the site. Almost everyone seems willing to help and does so without attitude.
Count me in.
I see this on other forums as well. People will sign up, be active for a while, then drift away. Perhaps they have found other interests?
...or maybe they are out there haning??
Shug - I do...
I agree with mike on this. Yes, we don't need "price police", but 2x what they are selling for???
Now back to our regularly scheduled hanging...(hammock hanging, that is).
I used 2x3's for mine as I wanted a bit more support. This worked well.
I also used the angle cuts so I would not need the lashings on the legs.
I also used 1" conduit for the ridge pole - 10...
I do this with my GT SBP. Netting just hangs close to the underside of the hammock.
I hung mine full length under my hammock (paracord on the corners, ran through the biner at the end of my hammock) and this snugged up nicely to the bottom of the hammock. Made a noticeable...
LMAO I am sitting here, reading this to my wife..sounds strangely familiar. I feel for ya, man. LOLOLOL Happy hanging!!!
I think around here, we throw those back and let them grow...
Here is my Turtle Dog Stand.
I used 3x2's, which I found at the local hardware store. I felt these would offer a little more support that 2x2's and they were only about .20 more for the 8 foot...
I ordered my first set of whoopie slings, which arrived yesterday. Holy little things, Batman!!! These things are so small and light. I think the package they came in weighs more that the slings! ...
For me, rim to rim from south to north was 4,500 feet down, 5,500 feet up, 23 miles and 15 1/2 hours on the trails.
Absolutely kicked my ***, but was amazing. I can't wait to get back there.
I am new to the world of hammocks as well and can understand you feelings here. As is stated here.."Hang your own hang". Enjoy it.
I am starting out with a pretty much stock...
Welcome from Iowa.
Great trip report and I applaud your efforts in working with the rangers to make The Canyon hammock friendly. I definitely would be interested in hanging in the Canyon.
I did a rim to rim hike of...
I think it's self explanatory. LOL
I have been lurking around here and absorbing as much information as possible. I just purchased my first hammock - a Grand Trunk Skeeter Beeter Pro, after seeing one in action last summer at a...
I'm in and would love to give this one a try!
Doing some calculations (going way back to hs geometry class), if you measure down the line to your hammock 1 foot (or 1unit) then down from the hang point on the tree 6 inches ( or .5 units) for a...
A rock or the back of my hatchet if I have it along.
I concur. Great information. I appreciate you sharing your knowledge.

I would go with that. Lol
Waterloo area here. I'd be glad to meet some others in the area.
LMAO Hmmm....so it's not just my wife? I got yelled at for hanging my new hammock in the basement. I just got it...sheesh.. I have to make sure it worked.
I am new to this as well and this is the one I decided on. It arrived this week and I had the chance to hang it up briefly and was amazed at how comfortable it is and how easy it is to set up. I...
I'm looking on their website and not finding this price (I do see the free shipping). Where do you find this? Also, what size are you using?
Thanks - OFG
I am new to the world of hammocks - just got mine this week. This forum has a great amount of information and this thread in particular has been very helpful. I will be building one of these in the...
How did I miss this??? lol
