Hammocks have been around for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. Nowadays, you normally see them on beach resorts, lawns, and during campouts. Lying on a hammock can be quite relaxing, and since it’s elevated from the ground, you don’t have to worry about those creepy crawlers ruining your rest.
A hammock can also be a soldier’s best friend, especially for those who are assigned on missions that require them to spend many nights in forests. The hammock may be the only place the soldier can sleep on so carrying one is a must. It’s a place to rest after a tiring reconnaissance task.
Remember those WWII US Navy style hammocks you see on TV or movies? Wouldn’t it be great if you could make one and place it in your garden or patio? This DIY tutorial video will show you how easy it is to make one. There are no special tools needed and all materials are readily available from your local hobby shop.
