    No hike hammock build

    I planned for an overnighter in Pisgah but the weather dissuaded me, so if I wasn't going to hang in a hammock I was going to make one.

    Based partly off the Hennessy tutorial sticky and I just winged it for the bug net. I have been wanting a fully enclosed system and just needed a push to get to work on it. It has side zippered entry, the bug net is noseeum mesh, and the hammock is 1.1 from diy gear supply. I tied off the ends with some gutted paracord and the non-structural ridgeline is also gutted paracord.

    Hope you guys enjoy the pics.




    Fits nicely under my diy hex tarp.



    I am going to shorten the height of the bug net a bit and may still add tieouts on the side, I just never use them on another one I made so I am not fully sold.

    Thanks guys! The tarp was a fun project, I keep thinking I want to sell it to make a little larger version but then I hang this and it looks good to go. I need to get to work on my new UQ so I will feel better about my gear.

    Half my pack for this weekend was sleeping bags and that is unacceptable.

    Nice looking set-up
    I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
