In September HOI showed me his hammock stand. I love the idea of having something portable you can put in the trunk of just about any car. I finally got around to finishing mine today and setting it up. I'll probably be sleeping in it tonight.
HOI told me he got the idea from a thread here: http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...+hammock+stand
But I got most of my ideas from looking at his. The poles are made from fence top rail and are all 32" long when down, they are a little over 60" tall when set up.
If anyone has any ideas for improvements shoot - I'm all ears.
