16213Re: [Hammock Camping] Using my truck and a tree
- Oct 30, 2006You can probably come up with any number of ways to tie off the end on
the truck. In this photo I went out the passenger side wind an over
the top. I then tied the strap to the part between the driver window
and the rear driverside window. I jus tied it up like I would to a
I could be setup so you have a loop to hook onto in the center between
the seats. I was thinking pickup owners with the middle sliding rear
window could put a wrap over the top of the cap, through each window
then have the loop dead center and you attach your hammock through
that rear sliding window.....whew!!! I hope that made some sense.
I thought of this because my office doesn't have two decent trees near
each other and I need a way to take a nap sometimes ....LOL!
I did have to hang the hammock all the way to the ceiling and pretty
high on the tree to keep from hitting the bed of the truck.
Having most of your body inside the truck like that would definitely
give a lot of protection in foul weather. If its cold, you could
bundle up stuff under you to stay nice and toasty.
If it's warm, just roll all the windows down.
I'll let you know if some other variant comes up.
If yall build on this idea please post what you did!
