I posted a thread about a new hammock build that uses a NeoAir pad.
Naturally, a few people were curious as to what the hammock looked like when occupied. Here are some shots from last week-ends wonderful visit to the North Umpqua Trail and Toketee Hot Springs.
Getting in the hammock is easy. I hung it low to accommodate bunk style hanging.
Initially everything looked cool.
But, when I woke up, I saw some bad tilting in the fatpad hammock. It made me a little sad.
The occupant was partly off the pad leaning into the netting. But she slept and slept, and then reported it was the most comfortable hammock experience EVER! Well, I guess we were lucky it was such a warm night. But I see the need for stabilizing the pad in the hammock. I made a WRONG assumption that because there appeared to be no room for the pad to slip, that it would therefor not slip. Maybe if a person repositioned themselves carefully by grabbing the pad this could consistently be avoided. And when I use the hammock, I do just that. However I want to make it trouble-free for my GF. So it is clear, I have a bit of refinement that must be made to really complete this project.
