- Oct 5, 2006i`m thinking of a couple differant dirrections this could go.
1) a hammock that`s not got much swing to it.
mabey it would hang from the trees by two straps on each end...
instead of the straps attaching to a single point on the hammock end,
they mite attach about a foot apart, then each strap would go around
oppisite sides of the tree. there would be less swing that way.
then the candle lantern in it`s little house...mabey made of
flashing, which is also your stove`s wind shield, would sit on the
ground. small tabs on the bottom of the wind shield would alow you to
use rocks, etc, to weight it down.
attached to the bottom of the outter hammock shell would be a tube
made of fabric that is both fire proof/retardant & flexible, this
would alow for some movement. the tube would be only slightly larger
than the wind sheid that the candle lantern sits in, so it slides down
over the wind shield. some air would need to be avalble to alow the
2) another option would be to have the candle hanging from the bottom
of the hammock`s outter shell, probably by the same type fire
proof/retardent fabric. again, i belive the bottom of this fabric
tube would need to be given it`s round shape by the wind shield & air
intake holes would be needed.
with either method, the fire proof/retardant fabric tube would be
needed to give a certian amount of distance between the candle lantern
& the bottom of the actual hammock. the distance would be determined
with testing, BUT i belive another layer would be needed to father
seperrate the top of the candle & the bottom of the hammock. this mite
be another length of the fire proof/retardant fabric. this could
greatly spread the intence heat coming off the candle lantern, mixing
it with surrounding air inside the shell. (mabey some of jd`s stuff?)
also with either method, the sides of the outter shell would be
attached to the hammock body in such a way that little heat would
escape along the sides of the hammock, but would vent from both ends.
just a thought (or two)<g>
again, if anybody`s going to try any thing along this line... please
do it people free untill you`ve got a sure thing. ...tim
