I want to make my first hammock, and to do so I have many questions.
I would like a 2 layer hammock, one side olive green, one side something that would blend in with trees with out leaves...(if this is a reasonable idea)
I don't have a walmart that has ripstop ever. so where is the best place for cheapness/quality/service? (online)
I might just have to make 2 tarps, i want one for winter and then summer. but i guess i need to just start with one. I might have to do some hard looking but a winter camo is what i would really like.
Is a single line suspension to complicated for a beginner? and with it do i always have to have the tarp on?
Tree straps... I get it, but don't. Whats the best way to attach the hammock to the tree strap. Whoopie sling and... caribiner, soft shackle?
Suspension, I would like to use 7/64'' Amsteel. Seems popular, and easy to work with. ( making whoopie slings, soft shackles, ect. ) But what color? I really like to look of the silver, but also like the red, blue and orange. Different color for different things?
Probably really confusing to read, but my ideas and thoughts are just as confused as you may be. I am just really looking for thoughts, hints, any kind of help so I can buy something and not think twice about it. I would like to thank you in advance for your help.
