    What ever happened to that big revolutionary hammock idea?

    Hey folks,

    I remember reading a few months ago (it may have been in the DIY subforum, I'm not sure now) a thread about this great hammock invention that was still in the making. It was so good and yet so simple that once revealed we were all going to kick ourselves for not thinking of it first.

    I wish I had bookmarked the thread, because now I'm curious to learn what became of this greatest invention since the hammock ridgeline.

    Does anyone have any clue about the outcome of that project?

    Thanks for sharing...

    I remember that thread. I was really curious about this mind blowing design as well.

    I've blown my mind a few times with non-standard hammock designs - but never in a good way!

    Now there's some imagery that leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

    As I recall, he had a moment of lucidity in which he said it might be December before he could produce this wonder, and we (some of us) said we'd wait patiently.
