    Timberrr and I are still looking for a solution that will allow us to share the same bugnet/tarp. Thanks to those who are actively seeking a solution!

    This is so, so fantastic. It is quite the undertaking and I am not sure I am anywhere near ready to attempt it.

    QUESTION

    I think for most of us, the only thing we miss about a tent is the ability to sleep "with" our loved ones.

    What if you could suspend two bridge hammocks right next to each other using three tress? ...Is there any way you could do it with two trees and use spreader bars to spread the hammocks?


    Great work DBLHAMMOCK!

    Man this looks awesome. Great job dbl. Maybe be marketable some day? I miss the cuddle factor of tents, but love the hammock. This solves the problem.

    Just me thinking but what if you take out the center divider rope. It would eventually be one big bridge hammock. The two outside ropes go to separate trees and the center is joined with a French seam. Making it a single double wide bridge instead of two bridges merged together. ???? Am I way off on my thinking of this or what?

    Hello,

    Sorry for necroposting, but i'd like to ask a question to dblhmmck regarding his double bridge hammock, but i think other people might also be able to answer.

    Why using three trees ? Since you're already using spreader bars at both ends, i guess it's not for structural reasons. Is it for stability ? How does this hammock behave when only one person lays on one side ? What about a hammock with only two anchor points ? Would it be necessary to hop in it and get off it at the same time as your partner ?

    I went hammock camping for two weeks with my girlfriend and we really miss sleeping together, so this is what i'm planning to make, and i'm wondering if it is possible or a total aburdity (don't laugh at my MSPaint skills) :




    [Edit:] Oops, sorry, i read the entire first post and had my question answered.
    Still, can the central rope be adjustable as i planned ? Or is it another absurdity ?

    Maybe with an adjustable central rope, one can warn the other he or she's getting off the hammock, loose the central rope and let the other person rest in the middle of the hammock, effectively avoiding tilting while still using two trees ?
    We are both about the same weight.

    As I see it there is no balance in your setup Biales.

    Getting in and out will be very tricky. Once one side is no longer loaded and the loaded side not centered the hammock will want to tip.

    Also you have to think about hang distance. With my bridge built for one, I can not hang less that 12'. Best is 15' to 18' range. With the longer spreaders on your design, to get the 83% compression on the bars the triangle is going to have to be pretty long. Then it comes to a challenge just getting you tree straps high enough to get a 30* hang.

    Lots of things to consider with this design.

    How about just using stacked spreader bars. Drawback is this would increase total length of hammock and suspension but hey, this aint no traditional hammock either..

    You should be able to use a single tree at each end now..Also this would allow for you to simply use two bridge hammocks rather than making a new double or just design a double that can be separated somehow when needed.
