DIY Camping Hammocks 101 – Preface
I am a big fan of camping (mayan) hammocks. I have made 3 already to varying degrees of success. The girls love them! I am stepping into the next stage of DIY now and making a few more as well as helping some others make their own. To that end I am creating a collection of posts that will hopefully chronicle the process.
There are a good number of commercial hammocks, but there is something satisfying about being able to do it yourself (you will see that as a recurring theme for me). There are also some nice books as well as some good online resources about hammock camping which I will link to here.
So why set write it if it already exists? Well for starters, because I want to. If that is not reason enough, then simply because there is so much info available that it is difficult to know where to start and how to proceed.
I think one of my biggest strengths is my ability to distill useful information and present it in a logical easy to understand format, so that is my goal here.
