Thanks everyone for the kind words and encouragement. I'm still waiting on my hammock to be delivered. I feel like a little kid waiting by the mailbox. I am in the process of buying the materials to build a portable stand. I hope to have it done before the hammock arrives. I saw one here on the DIY forum that was too cool. I thought that this would be great for those campgrounds where there were no trees or when hanging things from trees was prohibited.
I think I'm hooked.
