    Anybody know how to make a 550 cord hammock? I was out in the field and I saw a guy just laying in a homemade hammock. Ever since I've tried to figure it out...to no avail

    I saw an "instructable" on it a while back. Looks like a lot of work.

    Last thing I 'made' with 550 cord, was to use about 50' to string my Ham radio di-pole antenna up.


    Couple of little pulleys, couple of tie down cleats, and then strung it up.

    Cheesy, I know.


    As long as the people remain armed,
    government knows that it cannot rule over the people by force.
    Those who stand in defiance of unconstitutional laws
    do so out of duty, honor, oath and love of country.

    My roomie and I strung up a zip line for garbage to the dumpster with 550 cord. The college ordered its takedown three days later.
