I have a problem, none of my trees in my yard are close enough to hang from. I'm thinking about putting in a single 6x6 wooden post about 15' from one of my trees so I can hang a hammock in the back yard. It's either that or build a hammock stand. What I like about the post idea is it's only a single post, dig a whole and quickcrete it in. I can not only hang my hammock but tarp as well.
So what do you think? would a 6x6 with 2-3 ft of it in the ground in concrete hold? Seams a lot simpler than building a whole hammock stand and cheap too?
