    There are some trees. We are working on hanging options for them. Concrete posts, hooks into walls etc. Lots of thick cement fences in the area.
    The ground is mostly coral and rocks.

    Sorry I was late seeing this. Neat idea!

    Have you been able to use it much? I'm curious about slippage, especially when sliding a gear pocket along the ridge line.

    Materials

    I can order materials like no see-um netting at cost. If anyone is interested I will contact some suppliers and see if they will eat their profits to get prices down further. Maybe we could all go together and split the cost to send out a few rolls.

    I have some extra fabric, what's needed most? Kid size or adult?

    I assume we're not being picky about fabric? Tight woven polyester ok?

    I don't have any suspension line around, but Paracord is cheap and should work for a kid...

    Let me know. I've never made a bugnet, but if I can buy some Organza, I'll give it a shot... Worst case, I can put together a few hammocks to add to the pile if others are making nets...

    Thanks!

    My brother works for a local utility pulling fiber-optic cable. They end up with some of this rope left over. It's not the lightest stuff in the world, but it's FREE. (They throw it out!)

    It does degrade in UV, but it will last at least 2 years (my personal experience) before it gets too bad.

    Since it's heavy, I'm not sure if it's worth shipping... If I recall, it's twisted Poly about 1/2" and yellow...

    I can get hundreds of feet quite easily. Thoughts? 700' weighs about 20lbs... The also sometimes have "mule tape" which is basically nylon tape, it's good to 800 pounds, if I recall, and also used to pull wire through conduit.

    He' going to check again on Monday and see what they have...

    Let me know what you think...

    Mountainfitter..we are set on fabric, unless someone else wants to volunteer their sewing services?

    J.S.. I'll be accepting any and all sizes of hammocks, your choice of fabric is fine . For the rope I'm all set, I got plenty, thanks to those that contributed. Make up your hammocks and ship them, I'll throw on some whoopies.

    If anyone else is in process of building hammocks or donating items, please do so soon.

    Soon you will get a shipment of sewed and whipped end hammocks from the school for the deaf. They are still working on a couple more

    Late in seeing this too.

    I only tested it out once in my basement as it was on a juvenile sized hammock. I Turned Hangin' Burrito on to the idea and I believe he has been using it on a daily basis. He said he loved it when he made it. I'll talk with him later and perhaps he'll comment here.

    Thanks for the response, RF -- I haven't done it yet, but I do plan to make one soon. It makes a lot of sense and gets rid of the extra line at one end. Me like!
