    Hammock How To Series: Intro Video

    Hey, gang! I've posted an Intro video for my upcoming "How To" DIY series. I'm super excited to use everything I've learned here as I go forth and make my above ground sleep system. Thanks to everyone for all the great advice! I hope I do y'all proud!

    Creative, Kayt.
    Your sleeping bag is definitely not down filled and it will be a big uq. If your planning on backpacking with it, you may want to reconsider the fill choice. It will be good for a summer/car camping uq tho. And good practice.
    Good luck, and I'm looking forward to your series.

    Thanks for the great video. It will be great watching you go through the projects. I plan on sharing these with our scout troop as we are looking at converting over to diy hammocks.

    I'm sure your DIY project will turn out fine. Have fun.

    Great production, easy to see, & easy to hear.

    I have the same sleeping bag, but I just put the whole thing in the hammock. I'm lazy like that

    Kayt,

    Nice job on the videos. Looking forward to future episodes. I bought the same cord locks yesterday at WalMart... "just to have around".
