    Just came across some weight & height tables for kids' growth. Might be useful for planning hammock size.

    Frawg, I personally test all hammocks! If they pass the big fat gargoyle test, they are all good to go.

    All hammocks received and built have done great. You guys rock.

    You had me chuckling here... the image of you all balled up in a fetal position, trying to fit in one.

    Donate water filters?

    For your donating consideration:
    Below is the email from Sawyer Products in response to being informed of HF's Hammocks for Haiti effort.

    Here's the web address to the filter they are referring to in the email below:

    Hi Dan,

    Thank you for your email and for the work you are doing to assist Haiti. We would be happy to extend the special pricing of our filters to your organization. If you looked on our website you probably saw the cost for a filter donated to Haiti is over $63 and that includes the bucket and transportation to Haiti. That price is much higher than you would actually be paying if you bought directly from us and transported the filters down to Haiti yourselves.

    If you would like to raise funds specifically for the orphanage you are working with and have a way to get the filters down to Haiti we can offer you the filters at $30 each. If you had all the donations for filters come in to your organization then placed one bulk order with us that would probably be the easiest.

    Let me know how that sounds and if you have any questions!

    PS I am obsessed with my eagles nest hammocks.

    Nice find on the water filter. We have been trying to establish a line on the bio-filters (big pot, filled with sand and gravel) for the locals to build for themselves. $30.00 is a heck of a bargain, will definitely grab a few if we have the money.
    Thanks for checking on those.

    You basically have to re-educate the people down in Haiti or DR. They have been drinking nasty water for so long, they don't know its bad.
