    One heater multi hammocks, anyone done it?

    I have been playing with the idea of a heated hub to keep more than one hammock tarp warm.
    The thought is to have each tarp meet up to one center hub with a heater that allows the warm air to be shared with each hammock.
    I figure the hub will need to be a stand that each hammock shares and a tarp system that could over lap or be over lapped by the other tarps.

    Every one here has seen the stands that share a center and I figure the central heater idea has been done already as well.
    Please share links and or ideas.

    Use sil-nylon instead of netting and add a central stove!

    My initial thought is a geodesic dome. There are several threads about them, although I don't recall anyone mentioning a heater.

    You could also lookup the Smokehouse Honeymoon Suite. It is a custom tarp enclosure for two hammocks. I am sure that a stove jack could be added for a small woodstove and chimney, just like the original Smokehouse tarp enclosure.

    Cheers
