    Thumbs up New "Wood-Grain Embossed" Hammock

    Here is the only picture I could find of what the material will look like:

    That sounds awful. I will try to keep an open mind, but it won't be easy.

    Strange concept, I would have thought smooth and flat would be more comfortable.

    Saying that I doubt you can tell the difference once you're in

    Then maybe they'll call it the Mr. Hankey! Then it'd be Heidy Ho! instead of Whooo Buddyyy!

    Looks like it's just soft, textured nylon. Can't imagine it being that bad.

    Although the chocolate one is very doo-doo brown.

    ugggg, I hate facebook People finding me all over the place....then friends think I'm always on it because I have to use it to log into other places....then they get mad when I don't reply back to them...as I would be nuts to connect it back to an email that I actual use all the time. To many are reliant on facebook......I voted

    Just a brief rant, this was the third place today required facebook activity....just saying

    I sort-of like how the chocolate looks. I was going to vote peanut butter, until a terd picture popped into my head, thanks gang.

    I'm thinking of the term; "Jumped the Shark". No worse than the pink camo one.

    When they were running that $12 deal on Amazon around Christmas for the GT UL's, I ordered one in blue and one in green. Pre - Whoopie conversion the green one was well over an ounce heavier than the royal blue one. So, I'm not stealth when I'm a hangin'!
    Afoot and light-hearted, I take to the open road,
    Healthy, free, the world before me,
    The long brown path before me, leading wherever I choose.
