Hi again Carol.
Best of luck on your upcoming hammock camping. I was in Jones Gap SP a few
weeks ago--quite a secnic place, hard to believe it's in SC!
I was thrilled to find this group on yahoogroups. I simply did a
search to see if others were discussing hammocks beside the info on my
list and found this group. I've been lurking for a about a month while I
read Ed's book. Now I'm ready to gather the materials and start a
couple of camping hammocks a la Speer.
My sister and I weave hammocks
from cotton/poly cording and thought
years ago they would be ideal for
camping with a tarp over them .
HOWEVER, we discovered our hammocks,
ranging from 8 to 14 pounds, are
WAY too heavy to take on a hike. I
store mine in a huge Rubbermaid tote
when not in use. I bet it would hold
a Volkswagen though. :-D We call
ours the Carolina Crescent
I'll be "hanging out" with my new camping hammock somewhere
Jones Gap and Devil's Fork State Parks in beautiful UpState
SC as soon
as I recover from knee surgery later in the
PS - you can see our work here.
