Hi, my name is vaughn. I love to camp, and play paintball. Rico is my paintball radio handle.*name is from the lil penguin on Madagascar*
Anyway, I have been watching Youtube videos for some time. There is this crazy guy called Shug that is always talking about Hammock Forums.net And he has some awesome videos about his hammock trips. I decided I need to try and make a hammock*as I am a broke college student..* I got some rip stop nylon in the dollar a yard section of our local fabric store, and I had some military para cord I could tie the hammock with. I found a video on youtube that told how to tie a hammock.. no sewing required!! It took me a little bit, but I got it tied and hurried outside to hang it up. I was surprised how comfortable it really was. I sat and layed in it for awhile, then my daughter, she is 12, then my wife had to come try it out. She was the most scared of all of us to try it, but once she got layed down she loved it. Everything was fine, until both my daughter and I sat down in the hammock. the cord snapped and sat us both down on our rears... I will be going to the store tomorrow to get some good big rope to tie it with. I have also came here to search for better ideas on making my hammock. Cant wait till I get it right and can go camping with hammocks. Anyway, that is my first hammock story, hopefully wont be my last. Nice to meet yall.
