    Hello to all! & a question?

    Hello everyone. I'm new to here & to hammocks in general. I'm interested in making a hammock & could really use some direction. Such as: how to books? material ideas for 200# person? & anything else that may get me going. I know I haven't given much of a direct question but this is uncharted water for me.

    Thanks for any help,
    Jeff

    Welcome aboard, always room for another new convert in the crew. Glad to have you with us. In addition to the above online references, you can always go to Ed Speer's site and order his book. It's a pretty good little reference to go by. Of course, there are plenty of threads here on almost any and every aspect of hammocking you could possibly think of. Lots o' good readin'!

    REI also sells his book.www.rei.com/product/703555
    Might find it at your local REI.
    You'd miss out on that Ed Speer signature though.

    unless you bring the book to one of the south east hammock hangers association (SEHHA) camp outs at hot springs, nc.
    message #13 in this thread gives more info... http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ighlight=SEHHA

    they have already suggested the 1st two web sites & the book that i would suggest.
    if you'll read & check out the pictures in one or more of those resources, that will give you a good start.
    then if you have more questions, the people in this group will be glad to help.
    and welcome to HF. ...tim

    I was thinking Ed Speer's book would be the best place to start. Does it give detailed info. on how to make a hammock?

    Yes, very detailed info. Also, any questions that you have can be asked here to 'fill in the gaps'.
