Hello all! I have lurked here before but it has been a while. I'm very new to hammock hanging and have yet to officially hang around. I picked up two brand new military hammocks at a Ham fest (yup, I am a ham radio guy) I paid $5 for both of them, they're still in the plastic bags that they came in. I hope tomorrow to build a sling support and try one out. They are very heavy and cotton. They are the item that has started this fire in my head. I love the idea of building my own and being able to use it. I have learned volumes from the forum here and figured Iwould take a moment to introduce myself.
My family and I love to camp, and do anything that involves being outside. (usually in a pop up camper, please don't stone me, we have 3 little ones and it really makes camping possible with them ). My oldest just started as a cub scout and I think this will be a fun project for us to work on together.
