Gear: #4 Turtledog Hammock Stand
I built myself a pair of portable trees also known as a hammock stand. It was fairly simple to make. This design was found on Hammock Forums and proves to be an easy project with minimal tools. The stands fold up flat so they can fit in the back of a car or even on a roof rack. Quite useful for car camping at this parks where there are no trees or hammocking is not allowed. I used a full length ridge pole but others have used fencing material that breaks down into smaller manageable sections.
