So today I spent the afternoon sewing up a two layer gathered end hammock.
Then I spent the first part of this evening installing a couple of eye-bolts in the
garage so I can try this out. My anchor points are about 20 feet apart, so I did
some calculations and put the eye bolts up 101 inches and just finished fiddling
with sling length so I don't find myself laying on the floor when I get in and things
stretch some -- as it did the first time I tried it out.
I am planning to give it a go and sleep in it tonight. So far not much luck getting
a diagonal lay. I am usual a side sleeper, so it will be interesting to see how that
I want to spend a few days at home seeing how this is going to work for me before
commiting myself to a backpack trip with it. The big question is how my creaky
old beat up body is going to take to this.
