    I guess this revolutionary hammock has fallen to the wayside?

    I think he decided not to post here so his ideas wouldn't be stolen... I'm sure the op stated in another thread that he wasn't going to post his design here because he has seen some of his designs on other vendors websites.

    Easy guys. I'm not sure that's warranted. I just read through this whole thread again, and I was impressed at how much information LostinSpace shared with us over a considerable period of time. Like some other interesting threads, this one has occasionally been a bit unruly, and it's full of digressions. I am all too familiar with the way fantastic ideas can take a long time to realize. Nobody's been berating me for the incomplete state of my right-angle hammock, yet I haven't worked on it in more than a year (except for severely modifying the suspension so I could sleep sitting up with a broken rib - now I need to go back and undo that change). Yet I consider it a "work in progress" and plan to work on it in the future.

    LostinSpace, are you out there? If so, take heart, know that you have quite a few interested supporters, and work at your own pace.

    I wholeheartedly agree, WV! Without folks pushing the envelope, thinking outside the box, and approaching things from a completely different angle there would be little innovation. I think I've mentioned before that I've tried a few different radically cut hammocks that in my mind solved all sorts of problems, just to be tossed from them like a bronco. But I learned a few things along the way. So I say, keep up the experimentation. Just have a cushion under the hammock.

    It certainly isn't. I saw discussion on this very Forum of a hammock design that was shockingly similar to the one Gary was discussing. I think he was justified in pulling his pictures and refraining from discussion until he has a finished product, no matter how long that takes.

    While most of us can discuss our ideas and suffer little harm from someone copying them, people who are in the business of producing outdoor products, as Gary is, have to protect their means of making a living.

    I hope noone is getting at me? I was not trying to offend anyone... just passing on what I read on another thread to try and explain why this thread seems to have gone cold.

    If people have read what I wrote as a snide remark then I am sorry.

    I do wish that the op felt that he could post his ideas. I never got a chance to see the pics before they were removed and was very interested in his design, however I do not believe that he was unjustified in doing so.

    I believe I was one of a few dozen who got to see his pictures before he deleted them. I liked where his head was at on the design side of things, Atleast what he would show, and I really really hope he finishes it. He is a really decent guy I thought and would love to see his business plan so to speak succeed.

    I hope no one thought that about my comment either. I was just saying it sucks that he felt his idea was being stolen so had to stop posting about it. I found this thread after his pics were removed, so I didn't even get the satisfaction of having any idea what he's designing. Hopefully he's still working on it.
