Re: 4oz. polyethylene walmart tarp as hammock?
- Hi Todd,
I'm in much the same place, trying things to see what works. I tried
the cheap blue tarp as hammock and found that it just kept stretching
until it failed in about a week. I used nonstretch polypropylene rope
so almost all the stretch was in the tarp. I found myself stretched
down to the ground in the center one time. Of course I weigh about
220 pounds, so that is probably a factor. I have a brown tarp of a
similar construction and it is stretching over the last two days, so
I'm not going further with it. I'll probably try the cheap Wallyworld
Polyester cloth thing next. The tarp was wide enough that I could
sleep diagonal to it and it supported under my back nice. I liked
Hope this helps!
