    One thing I forgot to mention - the cross bars sit at close to six feet off the ground, meaning that the tarp, suspended from those cross bars, has enough head room to stand upright inside. When you're hauling close to a hundred pounds worth of aluminum poles, adding four pounds for a 16x16 tarp to get that kind of space really doesn't seem like much

    This thing was awesome. The Mustards (lol) had this thing set up at the CO Fall Hang with a BB and a RR under it and there was plenty of room for Mustardman, Mrs.Mustardman, me, and my wife all under there while my wife and I played with the hammocks. Incredible job on this thing, it is a DIY work of art.

    Off-topic: What was that string of lanterns you guys had? The solar power kit; that was great too.

    That was a GoalZero Escape 150 - we paid MUCH less for ours, by buying at a traveling road show at a Costco. I think the price was something like 40% less. I actually wish the stand at Costco had offered the Expedition kit, which folds shut to protect the solar panel, and charges faster since it has a larger surface area. For the lanterns, we had three of the Light-a-Lifes chained together.

    There is NO WAY I would recommend buying any of this stuff direct from Goal Zero - lots of other places sell at significant discounts, and if you can find them at your local costco, that's one of the cheapest ways to get them. We have a small backpacking kit from Goal Zero too, and it is GREAT for charging a phone or GPS. Just don't pay full retail prices, which are exorbitant.

    Thanks, now I have another thing to obsessively look for deals on. XD

    Really, though, that's a pretty cool setup. Someone ought to do an ultralight version for backpacking! XD

    Cool stand! I love the way one idea leads to another. It's hammock stand evolution at its finest.

    Wow! Beautiful design!
    Elegant solution too.
    Congrats on taking Hammock Stand engineering to a new level Mustardman
    Perfect solution just as is.

    Course, having learned a bit from reading some threads here on HF. Can't wait to see the spinoff ideas generated by creative HF forum members. Looking forward to learning more and reading as your design concept branches out and evolves.

    Hammock Forums - what a great place!
    Mustardman's MustardDog Stand - Wow!
    - Loki,

    "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
    Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
    The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
    while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."
    John Muir
