Check out this backpacking hammock that turkeyboy created. He has spent hours at the sewing machine and on hammock blogs designing it. (One of his hammock blog buddies wrote,"Think of the sewing machine as just another power tool." Thanks to this project, I now come Scott for sewing advice.) Don't let its simplicity fool you...there are all kinds of physics and engineering that go into a masterpiece like this. And yes, it is very comfortable.
