    I don't think that one's quite the same, Sarge. This one's channeled on the ends, like the one gmcttr linked to.

    I think you've got a bridge hammock there. You're supposed to put sticks in those channels.

    Just the way I read that made me laugh...'cause apparently, I'm 12 years old.

    But yeah, I think that's how it's gonna have to happen. I'll build a suspension for it with either PVC or some kinda pipe I'm sure I have around here and give it a whirl, and if I don't like the lay (which I'm sure I won't) it'll either be a PIF or a chairish type thing.

    Dang.

    They made another hammock after the M65.

    Why do they keep messing with my Army?

    They're even wearing fuzzy brown boots now.

    They're messing with your army because nobody goes into battle in phalanx formation with spears and shields any more, Sarge.

    Sorry, had to be said.

    So I got to searching around for another one of these, and discovered that it's bloody HARD to find them on the internets (thus far).

    Stupid hammocks.

    You need to use sticks like SS pointed out. My buddy has one. I don't think it is comfortable.
