    Making a Desert Hammock

    Well my long time friend is heading to Afgan Desert and wanted me to make him a hammock to sleep in while he is over there for the next year. Before anybody chimes in about the lack of trees in a desert.. I am sending a bamboo hammock stand with him. lol

    Ok so he wanted his hammock to be in the Desert camo pattern. Anybody know of a source for Ripstop nylon in Digital Desert Camo? Should I just make the hammock out of a different material?

    Looks like Hennessey sells several "soldier" models. On the down side, they'll cost a small fortune. $320!!!

    I'll keep looking around
