    Portable camping bathtub hammock / swinging swimming pool

    The poor people in Texas with all the heat got me thinking of what I would do on a Hot day, when I had the day to lay around in a hammock. I thought, I would set up my hammock, and a sprinkler right next to it, and lounge in a cool shower if texas tap water. Then I got to thinking, well would your hammock fill up, not if it was breathable. So I would want to go swimming and hang in a hammock at the same time, to cool off in the summer heat. Therefore I need the thickest sil nylon hammock that will hold the water and me. Obviously would want to go with very heavy duty suspension system, and hang her low, just incase. So thinking about the shape of a gathered end hammock filled with water is similar to a bathtub. So the train of thought led me to: portable camping bathtub hammock. Just add water warm or cool. And you water the trees at the same time.
    Anybody out there tried this, if you did, I would like to see what you came up with.
    I think I will have to get busy making one before the summer is over.
    Because you fall through the clouds if you try to lay on them, so the next best thing is a hammock.

    Never even considered the idea but I'd be sure to include a cup holder

    What I want to know is exactly how they got the suspension over the water. Did they have a boat?

    I'd just swim. The issue with me is getting in the hammock after it's hung without going to far and falling off the other side.
