Hello I am new here and a hammock hiker from way back but I haven't done it for several years. I take care of my Mother who can't do anything for herself and when the day of change comes I plan on getting back into using my hammocks.
I got inspired today to dig out a few of my hammocks. There are 2 that I bought and 2 or 3 that I made. One of the manufactured ones that I'm holding in my hand right now is a TROPICAL HAMMOCK by Nomad Pharmacy Ltd, 3-4 Wellington Terrace, Turnpike Lane, London N8 (I think I have their bug net also). I think I used my homemade one more then this one. I also have a mesh one that I got from US Calvery that I have gotten a lot of use out of (I'm thinking of getting a 2nd one). The main one that I was using I made from a bed sheet. The net ones that I made I learned how to from THE ASHLEY BOOK OF KNOTS. I love that book. It has tought me so many things. I love the story and picture of hammocks on page 589. Do a lot of you have this book?
