    Another Darn Texan

    Hello, I'm Josh. I live in New Braunfels, Tx and admit that I have been a tent camper all of my life. I went a gathering of fellow Bushcrafters and most of them were hanging in the trees, so I figured I would try it out. Lurked on this site some and found some cool plans for a DIY hammock stand and then made my way to the local sporting goods store and picked up a cheapy Moskito Hammock, MicroRope suspension system and a Kelty Tarp. Here are some pics of my First test hang.
    The Stand:


    The Hammock:


    The Tarp line made from Braided 550 cord and a Figure 9 (Hard to see.)


    And the Tarp:


    The neighbors are gonna think I'm a little off when they see me camping in the backyard.LOL

    Anyhow, see ya'll in the trees!!

    I grew up in gonzales... Still visit, even got family in your neck of the woods... Welcome from south Texas...

    If you wake up with that 2x4 on your butt its the 550s fault... Stretches A LOT... Won't break but it will stretch...
    Live, Laugh, Love, if that doesn't work. Load, Aim and Fire, repeat as necessary...

    Welcome, from Ohio. Everything looks great, great, great! I see you've already been warned about the paracord.
