    hello there from tn

    new member but reader for past month. I have made 3 gathered hammocks with bugnets and ridgelines. my first is a side zip with exterior ridgeline and sewnloops outside the net. it is ripstop nylon and the net is chiffon and it has a panel on the bottom for a blue closed cell pad that is halved and lays in a "t" in the pocket. it also has an internal hanging loft poclet and a sewn exterior pocket that doubles as a pouch for the hammock. the last two are bottom entry with velcro closure and internal structural ridgeline...one ripstop nylob and one polyester. all of these are for my boys because I stumbled on a HH with stock rainfly, monsoon rainfly, two snakeskins for $50. I have sewn a tapered storage bag for the inside and switched the suspension to whoopie slings. I have hung all week in my lounging hammock with whoopie slings and love it. loving all this homemade gear! I really enjoy all the posts and great people and help on this site.

    Welcome to the site. It sounds like you will fit right in here.

    And ... I may as well start it off ... can't prove it without pics.

    Thumbs up

    Sounds like you're ahead of many of us on the DIY skill-set! Just keep up the good work and enjoy.

    We'll cut a "Junior Member" some slack, but soon it'll be "pics or it didn't happen!"

    Greetings from Knoxville. Sounds like you've been busy. A first post with that many DIY items already made may be a record. We know which forum is your favorite already. There are some TN/WNC hangs coming up soon. Try to get to one if you can.
