    my take on a camp chair

    I was looking at all of the hammock chairs on YouTube,and in the forums here.
    I made a couple of them off some of those videos. They took two trees sort of close together,
    works OK, but what if you don't have two trees the right distance apart. I came up with a one tree camp chair,made of sport nylon. After some trial and error this is what I came up with.
    I used some parts from some old crutches I had hope never to use again, to make an adjustable post to support one end.

    I had the same idea for using old crutches to allow for the adjustability of the pole. Is that a pvc spreader you're using on the bottom of the chair?

    You should post a video or tutorial on how you did it and what all you used
