for give me because i am new...
My new grand turk (i think) UL hammock cam in friday. $26 shipped from somewhere on line. i hung it yesterday and ws quite comfy, so YES, I think I can sleep in a hammock for 10 nights.
so went to wallmark yesterday and bought A LOT of ripstop. i have no idea of wt, water proof or anything. i want to build a double layer so i can insert sleeping pads (that I already have) in between.
my current plan is a 11' x 54" and 2 side panels of 11' x 9". 1/2" hems and an open 4' section on one side middle for pad insertion. sew a channel on each end to pull in the gather and then tie off as per other threads I've seen on this forum.
My wife will be gone the next 2 night and i want to have it finished when she gets home. is there anything you would change about this set up?
i live in north fla and will not be using the hammock in the cold...hoping to get spring and fall trips to the smokies.
