    No World Record Attempt??

    I was searching the web after wondering how many hammocks were hung in one place and thought that I would find at least one record attempt on the Guinness World Records website. It appeared that no attempt has been made, or at least one that was recorded. I found one record attempt though on another web site. 125 people laid on their hammocks on Santa Monica Pier and relaxed near the ocean. This looks like nothing more than a marketing gimmick though. Info was found on recordsetter.com

    So the question begs to be asked. Why is there no Guinness World record for this?? And, how many HF members would be willing at taking a crack at setting a record attempt with Guinness for the most hammocks hung in one location? I know I'd consider it depending on the location from home and would think we could surpass the 125 they claim is the record!

    Another thread lead me to google largest hammock hang record and this thread (or post) came up.

    It would be fun to have a HF contest to try to get the biggest group hang. East Coast -vs- West Coast. Probably need to add Texas too. If it was big enought I would think most sponsors on here would participate.

    I am fairly sure I have seen wooden boats on the Amazon with more than 125 hammocks hang'n at one time on them. My church camp as a kid had several hundred hammocks hanging in one huge barn like room at one time. Then spread out throughout the tree's during the daytime. But a North American record would be fun.

    The record between just 2 trees at the same time is definitely more than 6, probably about 10 or more.

    East coast vs west coast + Texas?
    I think youre leaving out about 30 states.....Not too mention our friends up north.

    Sounds like a great idea though.
