A friend, Scott Dyreng (don't know his forum name) pointed me to the forum after lending me one of his hammocks for a night. I lived in Central America in the mid-90s and slept in a mayan hammock every night for nearly a year. I still have it, actually, and I sleep in it when I am a chaperoning at Boy Scout summer camp. I have plans to make a more durable, lighter weight camping hammock soon.
I wonder if there are any recreational tree climbers on the forum who climb tall trees using arborist techniques. That is one of my hobbies (see the links below) and I would love to sleep in a handmade hammock at the top of the trees.
