Swell piece of furniture.
Booze has been bumped up to a necessity and been replaced by this as a luxury item: https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/showthread.php?t=109993
Cribbage board. This item will save my camping buddy...
Woot special Yukon Outfitters with bugnet. 5x7 poly tarp. Knotted rope and those heavy steel links that came with the hammock for suspension. Used a sleeping bag I had and a...
Nice report. Happy to hear you had fast success. Did you go with 2x2s, or did you rip 2x4s?
The TDS sure is a great project and perfect solution to the treeless backyard.
First timer question.
What's the loo situation at a group hang?
Pack it out in our individual trash? Or is there a group evacuation zone?
Bummer, I was hoping to see your goose pattern top quilt in person.
I used regular, untreated wood. HOWEVER, I stained and sealed the regular kiln dried pine so I could leave it outside this summer in Wisconsin's sun and rain. Worked just fine for me and looking...
Awesome, sounds delicious!
I've never used snow stakes so I can't speak to them; however, I've had luck using resources in the woods to stake the tarp. A long log buried and left to sinter has worked as have long sticks or...
First timer water question.
I'm signed up to bring 5 gal pail to gather water from the creek.
What happens next? Is this community water that gets boiled in a big pot over the fire?
To answer your question, start here:
Plug in the specs of your hammock and desired ridgeline length you'll get closer to figuring out where...
Shoulders shrug. Looks like you have enough pole to experiment with putting the tripods outside. Let us know how it goes. I'm intrigued by this pole on top design I've seen folks using.
This Wisconsinite can't make it that weekend. Hope those that do make it have a cheesy time.
Yeah, my buddies and I make jokes about our "open concept" home in the woods. The fire area is the kitchen and living room. The trees over there where we hang our hammocks is the bedroom. The...
Very innovative. I can see this concept gaining a popular following, especially once you get a fitted tarp.
If you do end up testing without a mechanical limiter, please report your findings.
At any rate, that Plasti-dip is gonna look great and function well as a protective coating. I might even add...
Friction, itself, isn't enough to stop the legs from spreading. I wouldn't risk it.
You'll need something mechanical like line limiter, angle cuts on top, or the legs actually driven, staked, or...
Solid TD stand. Nice Superfly pitch too.
I'm curious, how did you attach the tripod legs to the gate hinge?
I don't see carriage bolts or t-nuts.
Yes! That's exactly what happened to me; well put, "laughing like a madman."
leupy, here's a simple attachment idea pictured below. Have fun!
Use the hammock hang...

Runners often describe feeling a rush of euphoria during a run known as a Runner's High.
So, I was hanging in the backyard over the weekend (Yukon Outfitters double and a TurtleDog stand), 11:00...
Nice demo. The bishop bag pocket to keep the outside whoopie sling in order is a good idea.
Welcome from Wisconsin. Ideal four season hiking and hanging around these parts.
I'm with the poncho liner crowd. Good down to 45/50* for me so far. I ran some string through the foot side and cinched it into a kind of vented foootbox (also identifies the foot side so I'm not...
This link should take you right to where you can "add to basket."
Devil Woman was great to work with and takes pride...
"Read" this to my little boys as their bedtime story tonight. We agreed that studying, learning, and valuing the old ways is important. Thanks for sharing and helping me water the seed.
4.5 inches in diameter
Flag itself turns out to be just short of 14 x 10
Let me know of you need any other measurements.
Nice one, StrungOut!
If it's a standard fence top rail you're using, hacksaw will work just fine (provided you have one on hand). Happy hanging.
I'll be holding a hammock tutorial during lunch break at work today. Two trees 15' apart right outside the office. Going to elevate some perspectives. Happy hanging!
Camped in the green bugnet style this weekend. Good hammock once you upgrade the suspension.
HammockForums flag in the forest.
When you elevate your perspective, every day above ground IS a good day.
Are you talking about wood legs?
Has anyone done this? What would you use as a sleeve?
Has anyone used square steel tubing with holes for legs (galvanized sign post)?
In theory they could...
Nice implementation of the idea for a semi-permanent shelter. Especially like the slit with sock solution for the hammock suspension through points.
I say no standard length. The factors for spread limiter line length are:
1. How far apart your tripod legs are at the base
2. How high up you put your limiter line
3. Spread limiter line...
I'm curious how your bamboo stand turned out.
Or is this still a work in progress?
Lol, going to add this to my joke repertoire. Good tell.
Does this page give you the answer you're looking for?
Count me in.
Here's a close-up for reference:
Check out this thread for decent tutorial.
Pretty sweet, dude.
R. Buckminster Fuller would be proud.
Here are some more optional hang methods:

Head right, feet left.
Still put my pants on one leg at a time...even though you can put them on both legs at once from a hammock.
What kind of tape did you use?
I have nylon taffeta (parachute type) hammock and polyester taffeta diy tablecloth hammock (60 x 126). Polyester taffeta is more comfortable imo because it doesn't stretch like nylon and feels softer...
Searched the forum and haven't found an example mentioned, so this thread seems like the best place to ask.
Has anyone used two continuous loops instead of rings/cinch buckles with 1" webbing for...
