    Rock me momma like a HAMMOCK WHEEL!

    Darius Rucker has a hit song "Wagon Wheel" that we changed to accommodate the HAMMOCK WHEEL we built at summer camp.

    Three poles planted about 3 feet in the center supported a military parachute and 8 hammocks strung to the center posts and tied out to either trees or beefy stakes. This was the best pioneering project we have ever made!

    After discussing it often over the past 6 months, a Venture Crew scout took the bull by the horns, got some help and built this thing. It was the talk of the camp! Oh yeah, the food was pretty good too.

    Hope you dont get too much flack from the hazing photo. Our scout troop nearly lost our charter due to a similar situation. The Council wanted to kick them out. They just came off of a 5 year probation.

    They perform it together often enough.

    Thank you. I saw some photos of a troop in Texas with one at a camporee where it didn't appear to have any trees and have been wanting to construct one ever since. It was great to have all 8 hammocks filled with everybody swinging side to side using the white rope. The boys had a great time using it throughour the week and the comissioner really liked it.
    Happy Trails to one and all.
