I am a broke college student and I'm taking the summer off to work. my plan is to make everything for a full hammock setup before the end of the summer.
my friends are planning to camp in early august, so I hope to have everything made by then. I have been lurking for quite a while, read most of the key DIY stuff and lots of the videos and tutorials.
I'm planning on making everything cheaply and i'm not worried too much about weight. currently I hike with a small 2.5 man tent, so by comparison any hammock setup will be lighter.
