    Thanks for reminding me of the excitement and anticipation I had went I was waiting for my hammock. You can always start planning your modifications to kill some time.

    You can track USPS? Huh, I'll have to check that. I think mine should be showing up today as well.

    2) put a bucket in the hole

    3) Fill the bucket with cement

    4) Put an appropriate height pipe in the center

    5) Let dry

    6) Fill-in the hole 3/4 with cement around the bucket

    7) Top it off with dirt

    8) Put a screw-eye bolt on the pipe at the right height.

    9) Hang the hammock

    10) Explain to the wife why you can't cut that part of the lawn any more!

    Ta-Da, but no place to test hang for now

    It's here, the box is open, but here at the office I have no place to test it. Our trees and columns are 20' or more apart. Have to find another test spot later. (slobber - slobber - drool - drool)

    I wish it were that easy. She started complaining about putting a 6X6 post in the back yard...I'm not sure what she's say about an ugly pipe. It's rare that she gives me grief about anything, so I'll give her this one.

    That's good, because I have a decent span between all the trees in my neighborhood, and where I *might* be able to install the aforementioned 6X6 post.
