Instead of purchasing hammock, you can make it by yourself using a 550 cord. Popular name for this type of cord is paracord. Paracord is common rope with flexible yet strong material for several outdoors activity including camping and hiking. Alternatively, you can also make comfortable hammock with paracord. First, you need to prepare a dozen strands of paracord in the same length. You will also need a wooden rod as well. The length of this rod will determine the width of your hammock going to be. Tie tightly one end of those paracord strands. Spread the cord evenly on the wooden rod. Knot two strands of cord close to each other. On the second row, you need to alternate the knot. Once you reach the end, tie cord strands on wood rod as it goes in the other end. The last step is to tie all paracord left together.
