    Of course back then, hanging a hammock meant figuring out a way to suspend the annoying kid's tent over a creek in the middle of the night....with him still in it

    ahhh, but grasshopper... i'm afraid you are mistaken. DIY is the path way into the light... not the darkness.
    remember when you tried to sew a hammock from rice paper in the dark. we had to cover the needle holes in your fingers with healing herbs.
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!

    Ray-Way products http://www.ray-way.com/essays/sewing-tips/index.shtml will teach you. Start with something simple like a stuffsack. After a month you will find yourself making a blackcat. Uh, make something nice for the big momma so that she can let you use the sewing machine forever
