Thanks for all the information it is a big help. Monday I found some
waterproof ripstop nylon in the $1 bin and bought some. Boy is that
stuff slippery! Wife sewed some snake skins with it to practice
Yesterday my wife found some ripstop in the $1 bin, and knew how to do
the 'breathing through the fabric' test (not the fire test) to see if
it was suitable for a hammock. Bought enough for a zhammock, which
she sewed up today on her new machine. Glad she bought that new
sewing machine, even sewing a hammock is fun, so far. I like my HH
Expedition but she doesn't like the confined feel and I think she will
like the open hammock, we'll find out this weekend. I promised her a
DAM for the cooler weather ahead.
