I'm back... I've got to confess, I have been cheating on this forum. For the past 9 months now, I've been TRYING to restore a 66 mustang, and have spent most of my time in the garage, at work, at school, or on various mustang and car forums. Now I've done as much as I can with the money I have (had.), I'm taking a break from the car, and want to get back to what I love a little more.
Today I wanted to "hang"... The only issue is, the weather is about 95-100 degrees around here, with 75% humidity...
After my first attempt at using an IronGym and a door left me on the floor, I decided on using just 2 doors, and the layout of the 3rd floor makes this task BARELY doable.
After much trial and error, I ended up leaving one whoopie sling attached, and pulled (almost) all the way up. The other side is just the stock rope, and a carabiner.
Each carabiner sits right above the middle hinge on the door, and when the door is shut, the forces are spread over the area of the door jamb and hinges.
The the middle hinges of the doors are EXACTLY 10 feet apart. This barely leaves room for a rather saggy (but comfy!) hammock!
I know it's not THAT exciting, but here are some pictures (taken from my phone, only 3.2 megapixels, so pretty bad quality)
The first 3 are taken from the hallway where the hammock is.
