    ultimate challenge

    I am facing the ultimate challenge. I have a 12'x9' canvas tent. I like this tent a great deal. However, I have switched to using a hammock and no longer use the tent, but would like to do so sometimes.

    I either need to sell the tent, or find two collapasable hammock stands that will fit nicely inside the tent. The stands need to be transportable via a Honda Civic. The tent is already huge and takes up most of my room. Any suggestions?

    I don't car what hammocks I have to use. I currently making a bridge hammock, and would consider buying some ENO's. Thanks.

    Maybe you could donate it to a local scout group.

    collapsable stand

    Last summer I built a collapsible stand for a bridge hammock. See this post. You could put two of those side by side inside a monster tent.

    Ooooo, that is a great stand. Thanks for the idea. I think I will start working on one. Maybe I could make one stand large enough to hold two hammocks.

    and here's a thread that talks about some of the commercial stands that people have liked.

    much more costly though.
