I have some MARPAT Woodland on order now, I'm planning on using it to attempt my first DIY hammock with.
    I lucked out in WalMart one day and found it. They didn't have a whole lot of it, maybe 6-8 yards, so I got all of it. It's uncoated 1.1 so it's uses are a little limited, but great for accent.

    BTW, the fabric selection in WalMart lately has been really poor. I did find some netting that looks real promising the other day. I need to go back and see if it's still there. The had some in black and dark green. I think the holes are small enough to qualify for NoSeeUms but it is a little stiffer than I'd like and only about 45" wide. Might be great for Tarp Snakeskins.

    Stoikurt,

    Great looking hammock, complete with accents! How much with shipping? lol

    PS. Go Gators! I was telling a friend of mine, this is the best preseason EVER. No expectations! You know why? Because we are NATIONAL CHAMPS.

    Nice hammock! Gators? Not so much. Was it Florida last year? I thought it was Texas... oh well, I can't keep up.

    I assume you mean the Canes? If so, winning a few championships keep them at bay!

    I am planning a section hike of the Florida Trail as we speak. Proximity is key. I can only get to the A.T. once, maybe twice a year, so this serves as a nice alternative. The only problem is the limitation of the weather (hot), etc...

    Let me know if you need/want some company on the Florida Trail. I've been using it as a training ground for my AT thru and would be happy to have company. I'm just a couple hours north of you. Wish I had some good advice for the weather.

    While doing some of the A.T. I noticed that hammock camp options were every where. What are the options on the Florida trail (hammock wise)? Just the bugs alone make me skeptical?
