Hello all, been scouring the internet for things to do with my time that cost nothing or as near to nothing as possible and found these forums while searching for a way to make my own hammock. (Thanks to all the people for the information so far, it's been very helpful.)
I have always wanted to try a bit of this "dangling precariously from a couple of trees" type camping but could never get the time to look into it properly.
I was made redundant late on last year so I have lots of time now but very little, if any cash. So looking to make one of these in my spare time for the summer (if it ever stops raining and gets here of course) for as little money as possible.
I thought I had it cracked when I found a site selling the fabrics I needed, then upon reading more on here it appears that I need heavier and wider fabric than i can actually find, plus all the other bits and bobs that I need, it's starting to spiral out of control and look like a pipe dream really but I'm not giving up just yet.
