I would be game! Any ideas on when ?
I've never just wanted to go hang out in the tent. Even when your camping the only reason to go in the tent is to sleep or get gear.
First back yard hang.
And here is the link to the original post.
Yeah its a DL thats pink on one side and black on the other with room for a pad if needed. I wanted the outside to be black so it would match my hammock which is black and purple. Same design but if...
gram weenie. That made me laugh. I'm not super concerned about weight but volume is something I would like to reduce. The synthetic insulation sleeping bag I use now doesn't compress much at all.
I should have some pictures of it hanging tomorrow. This one took me much less time. :)
I went and checked out one of our pillows and they are a down feather mix so that's out but I don't know if you guys read the post about the my luxe pillows on ebay but they are supposed to have 800...
I've already made two. The first one was a bad design lol and then I made my current hammock that's perfect...mostly. Her fabric arrives today so I'll get started on it.
Pictures to come.
Plus if you waited till the pillow was so gross before you tossed it you would lose so much business it wouldn't be funny. Pillows are something people notice and a certain amount of proactive care...
Lol. I work at this particular hotel on the weekend so it wouldn't be a gross one. I figure you would sleep on it if you stayed there so it should be clean enough to make a quilt from. :)
Ive been looking at making an underquilt next and I was searching for down when I thought about hotels having down pillows. After some research I found out that a local hotel uses a down pillow with...
Has anyone tried this pillow? Thats like $1.60 an ounce. Thats mad cheap!
That hammock looks pro compared to the first hammock I made! The second one is always better.
That fabric looks pretty dense. Do you know what it is? It might be more than you want to lug around...
Thats what I was thinking. Small price to pay. Plus its a great trail conversation starter for the passing campers.
Mystery solved! So you guys left them out in the desert like a pilar to the hammock gods?
Im glad I read this thread this morning.
So now that Ive made my first working hammock my wife has decided that she would hike/camp with me more if I were to make her a hammock. So I told her to pick out the color and I would do it. I told...
Alright Ill bite....those poles look to be about twice the length of the truck in the background. How did you get them from storage to use cause I know random 20 foot long bamboo stalks don occur...
I just bought a tarp but I might be interested in the plans because DIY makes me happy.
Dont let my wife see that pink hammock...lol
I get mine from a seller on ebay named fabric supplier I think. 4 bucks a yard for 1.1 oz in a good range of colors. I'm about to make my wife a pink and black hammock and an under quilt for myself....
I weathered last nights storm in my backyard in order to test out my new tarp. First time in the rain for me in a hammock. It was awesome!
Lol. Would I get the same answer from you if I asked if I could use my dog to protect me from the rain? Good answer non the less!
Im out in the hammock under the new tarp as I type this on my phone. My neighbors probably think I'm nuts because its storming pretty bad but I haven't felt a raindrop yet.
I made my first DL 1.1 oz gathered end hammock a couple of weeks ago and Ive been showing it off to everyone I know since. My wife has been on a couple of overnight hikes with me in the past and her...
I have that same gerber mutli tool. I love that think, It is bulky but worth it.
**edit** Nice. I was on the first page and didnt bother to even notice there were two other pager. Knife...
Photoshop maybe? How would you get up there?
Nice first post! Thanks for the info 3club.
I havent done much research on making the underquilt due to the fact that I was under the impression it would be better to make a tarp first but you...
Nice! Good luck on your trip and if I may ask why or what for are you going away for such a long period of time?
Do you know about what portions you used for the mixture? Im thinking about making a cat tarp soon and everything that Ive read has pretty much done it by feel.
5-12 Steve to the O offered webbing or ripstop (06:28) post 1756
Since either of those items havent moved Im going to change it up!
Same rules as original post. My new item is a new Magnesium...
I decided to do an overnight test in the gathered end hammock I made. It started out pretty good. It was a tad chilly at 10 pm the temp was 55F. By the time 5am rolled around it was in the upper 40s...
About 124x64 inches. It started as 128 by 66 and shrunk with hems. Now my wife wants me to make her one. :)
I like colorful things! Converse just fit the bill. I made some whoopie slings this morning and attached a ridge line. I just got done taking a nap in the backyard and the cool weather allowed me to...
I went a picked up a pair yesterday. If I get to test them out today Ill let you guys know what my thoughts.
And here it is! Its amazing how great it feels to lay in it. If my wife would let me I would hang it above the bed and sleep in it tonight. Thanks to Shaw (SaintSteve) for letting me use his sewing...
Im in shock... This whole topic just shows how awesome a group of people can be. There is still hope for humanity.
Welcome to the site dude! Way to be from Tennessee!!!! :)
Welcome to the site! Glad to see more people from the area. We should all get together and take a trip into the woods!
Alright so heres is my PIF!
I have about a yard (66' wide) of left over kelly green 1.1 oz ripstop that would make a great stuff sac or something else cool that you dont mind being bright green.
You are the man! Thanks for the quick response.
The black and purple ripstop I ordered will be delivered today! I'm excited.
I'm going to be following the gathered end guide by knotty but I don't think it mentions a way to leave a slit open if...
I will have my pif up by tomorrow!
I will take to amsteel!!!! If you still have it!
Dang I missed another set of whoopie slings!!! lol
Someone was looking at a roll of toothpaste when they thought of this...:lol:
I was just looking over their website and saw that! lol. too funny.
Heres my pitch for a free hammock. I should get one because Ive tried to make my first hammock this past week and it was pretty...
Anyone have some spare tree huggers or whoopie slings they want to offer up as a PIF? I was going to nab mmm scotch's but they were already claimed. :)
