    Default Grapevine Hammock



    I am not sure if this is my own idea, if it is not, please inform me!
    Would you rather this than a raised bed?

    That's actually an interesting concept that I've not seen before. It's sort of like a swamp bed in hammock style. I'd bet if you added some evergreen bows or some type of grass or brush (non poisonous of course) to the hammock it might be a bit more comfortable. But for longer term, especially on wet ground, that looks like it would be a decent option. Good post! Had to give you some rep.

    I thought some evergreen bows sounded like a good idea when I watched it also. Cool idea SurvivingtoThriving! It reminded me of the bambo hammock Dave made in one of the dual survivor episodes.

    Great job and I wouldnt worry about using the cordage unless you were surviving naked you would always have something to use as cord.
