haha well i guess it is a loaded question haha truthfully this is my first build and i have never laid in nylon hammock so im flying blind and winging it its a project i thought would be cool and i wanted to build my own rather than buy one far as friends or group hangs not really an option my boy is in cub scouts and i know i don't like sleeping on the ground and have always loved hammocks and im 6 foot tall around 230 pounds haven't thought about a foot box haha
