    Video of one of my DIY hammocks

    I made this one rather quickly so the quality isn't perfect, however, the hang is just fine. One thing it includes is an adjustable ridgeline using a small whoopie sling at one end. Works great for fine tuning.

    LOL! That's what I thought too! Nice setup. What a great place, called Hammock Island.

    Its a sloppy hammock, but a comfortable one.

    Some friends painted my toe nails when I was sleeping once. I would never do it voluntarily.

    Good video and narration. The audio was quality and you have a nice voice, very relaxing, yeah, good hammock voice. I thought the music contributed a lot as well. Here's hoping you make some more videos.

    Probably not. If I could just get her to try one in the piney woods.

I just made my first diy from some good ripstop that a friend of mine donated and when I get in the sides fold in on my ..it seems there is too much tension to lay diagonal. It does lay flat and seems strong enough but its not hear as open as yours. more of a cacoon than hammock.. please help..
