Not that I plan to go buy one tomorrow but in considering Medicin
Mans set up with his Crazy crib I wonder if it will work as well
with a Speer type hammock. For starters the Crazy Crib is narrower
through the body than the Speer and the 2 straps at the ends sort of
hold each end out a little. The results is that the Crazy crib
dosen't have quite as stiff a side wall as a Speer. IIRC Ed's
PeaPod is rather barrel cut instead of straight like the Ponderosa.
It has enough volume inside the center section to go around this
stiff side wall. I think the Ponderosa will cause the sides of my
homemade Speer to wilt inward but I don't know. I could make
another Speer using a narrrower piece of nylon, say 50 inches
instead of 60 but I'm pretty big and dont want to end up falling out
of the hammock, especiall if I'm wraped up in my "Imagianry
Ponderosa for now". Don't think it would be to good for the bag.
Anybody tried the Ponderosa or a similar bag with a Speer? How did
it work out?
