    no trees

    hey there. first post on the forums. i've got a cheap hammock on order from amazon to get me into this sport. i'm a kayaker, camper, and tinkerer, so i think this might fit me well.

    big question to start. looking at camping with a hammock where more than one tree in a camp site (as most are in dfw, tx) is rare. i've looked at a few different systems that seem easy enough to build off of. do you guys have any tips? i'm having a hard time with the lingo but the videos on youtube from shug and professorhammock sure have helped. is there a lingo that describes what i'm looking for?

    got the basics, now, how to build a portable stand?

    p.s. if you must know, a co-worker of mine and i ordered parrot bay key largo deluxe camping hammock's for dirt cheap on amazon.

    Welcome!

    Some info on doing a one tree hang: http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ead.php?t=3034
    Biggest problem is finding a method of staking that can take the high load.

    Here's a portable hammock stand: http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ead.php?t=8758
    Portable is a word used loosely. It's the best design I've seen here but it's still a lot of weight and bulk.
