18645Re: [Hammock Camping] Love my Trek-Light so much it's now everyday furniture
- Jan 15, 2008Rebecca,
Congratulations on the make-over!
I have a travel hammock (looks a lot like a trek-light) that we hang in
The main door is a steel frame with tabs extending out through which to
place pins to hold the door in place. There are tabs on left and right,
but our door only needs the left one, so there's a loop through the
right hinge and the hammock ropes go clip onto it via a biner.
The other half of the solution is a bit hard on the bathroom door
hinges, but it works! I've a 1 inch by 1 inch by 6 foot piece of wood
that fits between the wall and the hinges inside the bathroom. The
other end of the hammock clips into the loop of rope around the wood.
This arrangement is surprisingly solid. There are times when it's held
both me and my husband (a cumulative weight of about 350 pounds).
We can't leave the hammock up all the time (aw shucks!) because the cat
has picked up a bad habit of playing with the velco and the strings of
the JRB nest hanging under the hammock. I tied them up, but she still
We won't consider getting rid of the cat, because when I'm IN the
hammock, she makes pretty good heater. I use a regular down comforter
instead of the JRB no-sniveller, This is because I do not want to test
how well the no-sniveller will hold up to the cat.
The cat must be like your grand-sons, she'd much rather sleep in the
hammock ON me than undisturbed elsewhere.
When in the USA during the summer, I often have my niece squeezing her
way into the HH (set up outside) to sleep with me. She's a lot bigger
and warmer than the cat.
