    DIY gathered end
    Down and wool
    Whoopie sling

    Newbie from LO Oregon


    I've been reading for some time all the DIY forums here. What a resource! Then got to work and made a gathered end hammock. I used Amsteel cord and made a set of whoopie slings for it, and tree straps. Everything worked great. So much so my first time out I decided to go in the winter in snow. I wasn't cold although using a thermarest mat is a pain to keep on top of! But in the end it worked and had a great time and slept well.

    Thanks for all your posts and I'm a convert for sure!
