    My First Hammock DIY Project - Complete

    Well. I've done it!! In two weekends, around various chores and work-work, I have made a hammock with a shelf and an UQ to go with it. I'm ready for my trip this weekend to the beach, for my first nights in a hammock! Hoooo-Dilly! The tarp is one I bought a long while back, but it'll serve well for this weekend's field test.

    Thanks again to everyone here for all the wonderful advice and pointers! Couldn't have done it w/out y'all.

    I'll report back next week and post the mass amounts of video I have. Edited, of course... Stay tuned!!!

    Pics are here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/1268576...7625116433414/ ((click on the pics to make them bigger))

    Let the "fine-tuning" begin! BWAH HA HA!!!
