    Greetings

    Hello everyone,

    I can't say that I am totally in love with hammock camping....yet. I came across the idea a couple of days ago from looking for some camp sites in FL. I grew up in Georgia, but my wife and I will be moving to Central Florida at the end of May. Anybody in the area???

    After doing some initial research, I've decided that I'm going to try a diy hammock. I have nothing against all of the hammock manufactures, but I feel it would be cheaper and more fun to make my own. Plus, you guys have given me a ton of inspiration!!!

    -Eddie

    Welcome!

    From Sweden!

    DIY is never wrong, thatīs how I started. Itīs a cheap and easy way to see if you like it or not. Once you like it you will probably getting the same sickness as the rest of us.
