    nice idea. I have a old blue tarp that will work great. plus she gets all the benefits of being above ground also for tonight she gets her normal bed (4" of super foam and her blanky) on the poncho and an old wool blanket thrown over her

    Out of town for a week but after a red eye flight home Mon, picked up a 10' 1.5" EMT on the way home from the airport. Worked great. Yes, I will post picture (when I figure out how to do that).

    You can add another name to the list! I was poking around on this forum for quite some time, and as soon as I saw the TurtleDog stand, I knew I had to make one.

    For my ENO Doublenest (my first hammock), I wanted to make sure the stand could easily support two people. I ended up using 2x4's, 10" gate hinges with appropriately sized bolts, nuts, and washers, and a total of 13' of galvanized chain link top rail. I originally had the top rail at 14' but it was simply too long when I brought it into my apt living room .

    Side note: I like the 10" gate hinges because I was able to attach the shackles in the available hole which was perfectly centered (opposed to off to one side).

    I can post pictures if anyone is interested.

    The question was posed by old4hats about the number of turtledog stands that had been built. Went back and reviewed a few threads, the Turtlelady stand, the TurtleDog stand and a thread by domromer. Here is what I was able to find and assume that there may be others.

    Count me in on the Turtledog stand. I built mine last weekend. I plan on rebuilding it now that I know where I went wrong. But I do have to say, no more ground dwelling when I go car camping with the scouts.

    Comfort will be maintained.

    Sorry Barlutti, maybe jumped the gun on adding your stand to the list. Can you confirm if your stand is a TLS or TDS?
    I know that at least two more TDS's will be there.
