    DIY Hammock from Wal-Mart

    I just took one of the Coleman Sunwalls from wal-mart and made a hammock out of it, very light and cheap.

    I bought the exact same thing a couple of years ago as a tarp. Only used it twice till I upgraded. Now I know what it's next phase will look like. The only drawback is the it's water resistance, I'd be a little concerned with condensation. Let us know how well it works as a hammock.
