    My other 2 daughters still have to come with me to pick a color at the fabric store (and it can't be purple, or at least not the same shade).

    I'm working now on my niece's hammock -- she chose forest green, thank goodness. I made my nephew's last year in "coyote brown".

    Busy busy. I hope to take everyone camping at least once this year, either one on one or with some combination of daughters, as well as some solo trips for peace and quiet.

    What are you guys feeding your children that makes them colorblind?

    Watch out ! My son is 12 and claims the Double Nest Eno leaving me with a single. Good for y'all who custom build your child's hammock - there's no argument about who get which hammock.

    I made the hammocks for my kids so I could use them. Why limit myself in the gear I can use.
