    Talking Another set of hammock instructions

    I brought in the first DIY hammock I made as a white elephant gift for my job's Christmas party (if you don't know, white elephant is where everyone brings a gift and takes turns picking them, but you can steal someone else's gift, etc.) In about five minutes this morning, I scribbled out some instructions to give to the guy that got it. I had fun drawing it and we thought it was kind of funny so I thought I should share. I'm making my uncle a hammock for Christmas too so I want to give him the same instructions.

    Yeah, I liked that besides looking like it was drawn by a small child, it's the most compact set of hammock instructions ever! (Of course, it assumes the reader has suspension and knows how to use it, and doesn't get into camping issues...but the guy I dashed it off for will probably not be camping in it, at least anytime soon)
