    Thanks Randy! I sure was thinking about emailing you about something like this and now I don't need to.

    Well, Backwoods Daydreamer has been selling for $3.85 / yd

    70D x 100D ,61″ wide. Breathable, DWR. 2.8oz/yd˛ and gray.

    nylon, the last one listed on the following page. The hammocks made from it pleased at least two DIY makers, here. I wonder if something similar has long been used by Clark for all of its hammock beds.

    I have found that there is a wide range of fabric weights that will hold me up off the ground. But, they feel different because of the amount of stretch. I weigh 200# for reference. My hiking hammock is 1.4oz/sy and has a reasonable amount of stretch, but still comfortable for me. A double 1.1oz/sy feels noticeably firmer and is "just right" for my comfort. I use it when car camping. I also have a 2.8oz/sy hammock and it's too hard, no stretch. I'm starting to sound like Goldilocks!

    My point is, everyone likes a different mattress firmness at home, so the same applies to hammocks too. You don't know until you try one, just like in a mattress store. Our mattress store would be a group hang!! Just one more reason to attend. BTW, I'm packing for a group hang here in Florida this weekend
