    yes, i was saying to tie to the bottom of the swingset, but it would work to the top as well. this is basically how folks have hung from 2 ski poles at one end of the hammock, works for 2 pieces of deadwood, anything that's strong enough. you can even do it with one support like risk does here:

    it just doesn't sway side to side if you use 2 of them.

    Thanks for all the advise and welcome!

    Just received the GG evazote pads. Man those things are so light, I though the box was empty. My SWT should arrive in the next couple days so hopefully I can get a "cold weather" night in the yard this weekend.
