    My boys like hangin' around.

    We'll my sons were tired of thier beds and I finally got tired of hearing them complain. The oldest, Dalton, in the background has been hangin' with me for a while now so he knew right away he wanted a hammock in his room. CJ, the tough lookin' one thought it sounded cool too. So this morning when they arose refreshed and happy (for a change), I knew we did the right thing.

    They're swingin' in what we call, Camp Smiley Conastogas. They're canvas painter's dropcloths from Wal Mart. Washed about 4 times they're super cozy.

    10.00 a piece BTW. I know they'll hold these reload. They hold me easy at almost 400 pounds. As a matter of fact, CJ is in my first hammock.

    aha my reading comprehension is not what it used to be!

    did they require much work or are they just whipped and hung? id really like to make a few of these for anyone that might need to stay overnight at our house.

    Cool stuff though, I wish I was introduced to hammocks when I was younger. So many wasted years!

    I was not properly relaxing until I found hammocks.

    No diggity, no doubt my man. I grew up really poor in a little house, I could have had a sweet hammock set up instead of a bed, it would have given my bro and I so much more room for activities.
    They see me swingin', they hatin'...

    The ends are just gathered and wipped with some 550, I can guarantee these suckers up to 400 lbs. Of course I can't get wrapped up in them like the boys can, but smaller folks can pull the whole Avatar, fully enclosed thing.
