    Dangerous indeed. The DIY hammock is a great gateway drug to the harder stuff (tarps, UQ, TQ, etc). I would love to see pics of your hammock too when you get to that point.

    Have fun!

    Doors 4 eva! Same reasons as others. I can pull them back when not needed. When weather comes along, they are wonderful to have. The extra weight is not a consideration for me.
