    Hammock Camping la carte

    I've been working on this post for some time, trying to collect data on a lot of options. I'd love to have your feedback on the tool, particularly to see what I've missed.



    Hammock Camping la carte

    What I hope will be of interest on this post is the la carte table, allowing you to pick and choose from all the hammock camping options available: hammocks, tarps, suspension, straps, and insulation.

    The form is simple: Click on a gear option and a drop-down list will appear showing all the options. Select your gear to see the price and weight recalculated before your very eyes!

    NOTE: I'd like to keep this list up-to-date, but I also want to be reasonable with the upkeep. For example, some manufacturers have dozens of options and configuration possibilities but I am trying to limit the list to the stock models and options.

    One thing I hope to add in the future will be some meta data on certain items so that you can get a better idea of comparison (for example, dimensions on a tarp or under quilt).

    Hot dang! That was a big oversight. I'll get those posted ASAP, provided my wife lets me access the computer today (thanksgiving): she's put a moratorium on the computer on holidays.

    The menus do not drop down for me. But this is one cool idea.

    Couldn't get the menus to work either, but LOVE the idea!

    It doesn't look like it because the cursor doesn't change, but you have to click on a gear item and than a drop down box shows.

    It's a bit confusing and needs to be tweaked so it's obvious where to click.

    Maybe you could add the guide gear 12x12 tarp I know a lot of us have them and use them.

    Great work Derek

    Thanks for all the work Dejoha! I can definitely say, (especially as a Newbie), that this sure will be a great reference tool.
