    There's a limit!

    Just told my wife, of 38 years of marriage, that I wouldn't sleep on a bed so she could try my hammock tonight. Guess who's making another hammock and stand?

    Ha! What a coincidence. Last night I got my wife to try my Hennessy, which I made into a side zip, so she could get into and out of. Well, now we are planning our first hammock trip. After 38 years also.
    Never more than one man left behind, so far !

    congratulations oldog on converting another hammocker AND on keeping it together for 38 years! That's much harder than making a hammock stand

    I have been keeping an eye out for another lawn swing frame but with todays economy and scrap metal prices they aren't out there. A new one can be bought at the big box stores for $100.00 or may try a wooden frame. The hammock will be the easy part.

    Then I'll be expecting to meet your bride at the 2nd Annual Florida Hang!

    Good job on getting another convert. Though creating converts is easy...sometimes getting them out of your hammock is not!
