    Adding Posts to hang from in the backyard

    I figured out that my fenceposts are not quite sturdy enough to support a hammock.

    What is the best, easiest, most cost effective way to hang a hammock in the backyard without any trees to hang from? Preferably something my wife won't complain about.

    I'll have at least two hammocks, for my oldest son and I.

    To fit into the wife won't complain category and has use other than for hanging hammocks, how about a pergola? Just build it to the appropriate size to accommodate 2 hammocks.

    Now that looks like a great idea! Those top posts should supply lots of support, and the Wife would love it!
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
    Romans 8:18,21-22
