I would really like to construct a hammock that would hold my fluffy phiz. It will need to support my 6'2" frame with the 300+ pounds it currently contains. There are plenty of places here in NC where I could hike off some of this blubber but sleeping on the ground is not an option. I have tried to search the forums here for posts on the subject but with less than great results.
I think I could make the simple gathered end hammock described so thoroughly by Ron but can't seem to determine what material to use. I understand one can use two (or more I suppose) layers of a heavier rip-stop nylon but I can't see how to go about it. Are the two layers stitched together in some way before proceeding with the construction. Are they simply folded?
Anyway if some kind soul could point me to some other posts on the subject or provide a description of the process (and any other tips) I sure would be grateful.
