The only place in Idaho that stocked lines suitable for whoopies is us. Sorry but the right kinds of rope are not very common at most retail stores.

Boston on the spot. I ordered everything for a full hammock set up, fabric, amsteel, zing it and such. Everything only totaled $42. Amsteel for two whoopsies and two continuos loops only totaled $8. Received all within 3 days.

what line from REI for whoopies?
Would a boating store sell it? Just curious because we have a ton of them around here in MI...

Yes, a boating store will likely have amsteel. I bought 100' of 7/64 at West Marine. Just call the store and fins out. Ask for 12 strand single braid dyneema or ask for it by amsteel or amsteel blue. Make sure there is no core in the line you buy for splicing.
The road to success is always under construction.
FWIW - If I was starting somebody out with splicing I would get a hank of cheap 1/4 in hollow poly braid. The techniques are the same but it is a lot easier to see what one is doing. Just do not hang from it... ;-)
Free advice worth what you paid for it. ;-)
