    Okay! You asked for it. Who am I to argue? I found a couple minutes to edit some video and was able to post Part 1 of the hammock DIY project.

    WARNING: these videos capture "my" process for moving through design and construction, so there is some changing of plan, etc. And, my way is not the highway. There are a lot of ways to do this stuff. This is just how I work.

    I do hope you like it. More coming when I get back from camping!

    OOOO!!! I hope your first hang goes well! And thanks.

    The first field test of my first hammock and first nights out sleeping in a hammock went well! Despite 2.16 inches of rain in one day and gale-force winds that scared me enough to almost give up and head for the truck, I stayed dry and warm! My UQ performed beyond my wildest expectations. The old tarp did not leak and held true against the strong, gusty winds.

    Here's a pic from the morning after the first night. Pretty soggy! But, I was warm and dry. And there were raccoons the size of dogs! Whoa! Quite a different experience, being outside like that, but I'm definitely hooked.

    More videos of the entire process coming this week, starting tomorrow night!! Stay tuned!!

    Everything looks great - congrats! Having seen your earlier videos I noted you'd bought a sleeping bag, presumably to make an underquilt out of. Am I off base here? I'd like to know how that worked. Would love to see a video as well.

    Job well done! http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/i...es/biggrin.gif
