Some time back I read of an ultralight hammock stand made in Britain IIRC. Seems like it used 3 poles in a tripod at each end. I looked in the forums and can't locate it. (Probably because I'm too 1.pressed for time 2.cranky) I lean towards the first explanation. Superman will probably insist it's the second. Anyhow, does this ring a bell? :hammock:

So you're saying you wood hang a hammock from a tree. I'd say the problem is that folks haven't branched out enough to find the root of the problem.

I don't know about ultra light, but you can play with the title lady/turtldog stand design and probably come up with something. I know turtelady has a version she travels with, but it fits in a suitcase, it a backpack.

Trump has never been a drinker so he never took the ugly broad at the bar home at closing time (I'll never live that down). He only goes to bed with good looking women that make good looking kids.

Is that the younger one. I never saw her look like that. I saw two daughters and they seemed attractive.

Apparently he has a kid that is a zombie or on the cast of the walking dead. How cool is that?

THAT would be cool - they all seem like zombies to me.

Yes.

At least with the zombies you can chop their arms and mouth off, tie 'em up, and they'll do whatever the hell you want.

Yeah, how cool is that. If you do that to a real politician folks get all huffy....as if he were human.

You need to be careful what you do with the body.

Yep, the tripod is the Turtlelady stand I meant. Mine uses a gate hinge at the top of the tripod, but it isn't very portable. She has several permutations, some very transportable. PM me if you would like her email. She would be really happy to help someone work on their own version.
