      I've been off delivering stuff and Marines all over the Med this last
      week with a C141 aircrew. 

      I was the envy of the loadmaster corps when I rolled out my little
      bundle of a hammock and attached it to the walls of the C141.  Talk
      about comfortable!

      There is a special knot which holds well and comes untied easily for
      this purpose.  (Instructions for 1 inch webbing like the Speer
      Hammock) Take a loop through the attachment point D ring on the wall
      of the aircraft.  Bring a good 18 inches through.  Make a single
      figure eight knot, and leave a loop out at the end to pull the knot
      out.  It ties up in about a minute and comes down in just a few
      seconds.  I used this about a dozen times over the week as we had
      several long crew duty days and only 4 nights in hotels for the week.

      For a picture of the hammock, see:
