Does This sound Reasonable?
- I have made both a double layer hammock (like Risk has on his website-
Thanks Risk) and a tarp. I used the local Wal-mart for supplies and
have come up with the following weights using the postal scales here
at work. The total cost and weight are as follows:
Hammock 48" X 114" 31.6 oz. $16.00
Tarp 108" X 108" 18.8 oz. $8.00
Total 40.4 oz. $24.00
I am very happy with the outcome and the price is great. I still have
to make a bugnet but don't expect that to add much weight but will
most likely cost more than either of the above as I will have to mail
order the net. I know that I could have gotten lighter but not using
local supplies and keeping the cost this low. Does this weight sound
OK for continued use or would you recommend a lighter setup once
summer comes when I won't be needing a pad. Thanks.
