Our troop went on a campout this past weekend. Went to camp amd fish on the Edisto river. I as well as a friend of mine took our hammocks as usual. One scout took out this "thing" and began to hang it up. It was a homemade hammock that he and his mom have been working on! It was really cool. The next morning as I woke up there was about 10 scouts just standing in the distance looking my way....I asked what was up and they told me that they thought the hammock was "cool". That whole day between fishing and playing around the boy that had made his own hammock was, well for a lack of a better phrase, selling the boys on hammock camping! He has emailed or given his design to at least a half dozen boys. I asked him how all this came about and he said, "don't you remember when me and you talked about hammocks and you told me about that hammock web site". "Well me and mom went to it and got the info and went from there!" I swear those boys amaze me evrytime I get aroung them!
