    This is getting ridiculous.

    While on the trail this weekend, I thought "Wonder if our patio is wide enough for me to hang my hammock?" Measured when I got home. 12.5 feet corner to corner. This morning, I went to Wal Mart and grabbed a $4 set designed to hang porch swings (here's a link). Works great! I'm stoked to be able to test things at home, despite living in a 1BR apartment.

    It's not ridiculous. Seems perfectly normal to me.

    Porch?

    My back patio has 2 posts set at 11', plus my Turtledog stand... And a palm tree... plus the play structure....

    Just not sure how many of those I can use simultaneously before I have some form of catastrophic failure...

    Although it might be cheaper, using NoSeeUm that big might not be quite as effective as the normal stuff. But hey I'm a novice, whatta I know?
