    Looking for portable hammock stand for eno double nest

    My wife and I are planning a road trip through Florida and we'd like to use our hammocks. The problem is none of the parks we are staying at allow hanging anything on the trees. So I had the bright idea to get portable hammock stands and bring them with us. I bought a hammock stand before from home depot but it was too short for the double nest. I'm hoping someone here can recommend a portable hammock stand that they know will work with the double nest. Thanks in advance for your help.

    I don't mean portable in the sense of something that can be put in a backpack. More like something that can be broken down and put in a van.

    Check out Turtle Lady's design for a stand. She travels with her stand quite a bit.

    Big post here: http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/showthread.php?t=27777&highlight=tripod.

    I think it is what you are looking for. I have spent the last 3 nights very comfortable in mine (indoors, with fan and AC).

    To my knowledge, no one makes a portable stand that is suitable for the gathered end, camping style hammocks that we use. If you plan to use it outside, in conjunction with a tarp, it needs to be ~12' long, and 6' high. You are squarely in diy territory, and there is no shortage of threads here, dedicated to the search for the perfect stand.
