I just ordered myself some ripstop from backwoods day dreamer along with some amsteel. I have been inspired by all the information I have found here and am looking forward to making my first DIY hammock.
Right now I am planning to make a hammock with the folded whipping of the hennessy clone along with the tie outs. I think I may move the tie-outs closer to the head and foot, though. I will have to see what's most comfortable.
Anyways, I just had to tell someone cause I am super excited and I wanted to say thanks to all the helpful people who have put valuable information on these forums.
