tubular kind, but it'll work if that's all they have. Plus, it's
multi-use as a climbing harness if you know how to tie one!
Hrm...or go to a junkyard and cut the seatbelts out of a car. We used
to use those as climbing harnesses (yes, I was a redneck).
Or get the yellow poly-braid rope that Youngblood uses. It's common
enough that many hardware stores, and probably some Walmarts, should
carry it. Just look for a working load around 600 lbs.
And don't feel bad about breaking a support. I broke some cheap rope
once, and some 550 cord another time. Only one of them hurt...of
course, I didn't fall on my bum in a public park, either! :p
Now I use Spectra from a kitesurfing shop or polypro straps from Ed's
website ( www.speerhammocks.com ).
