    Here's a tip: make a check list for camping and save it to your computer. Take it with you and add to it until you have established the gear that caters to your needs. Then print it off every time you go camping. Makes packing easy without too much brain. I have a file called "lists" that has many different check lists for gathering gear: Primative camping, fishing, motel stay, hiking, ice-fishing, hunting, groceries, etc....... I love it.

    Ah, another list maker at heart. I love lists! My problem is that I love lists so much, I end up making a new one for every trip. Seriously, the one I made last month just won't work for this month - I WILL find something that needs to be different just so I can make a new list.

    Mac,

    No, this was a chair made of two rectangular frames connected at the middle in an X configuration for folding. A swatch of fabric went across the whole deal, but it wasn't stretched taut for sitting on, it hung loosely like a U. Didn't look comfortable but it really was, and gave your lower back good support. It was a type of sling chair and I've seen similar ones, but never this one.

    Ikea



    Search for "folding sling chair" and you'll find more than a few companies making 'em way more durable looking than this one.

    I've tried. No joy. Nothing like that one that guy had.

    OK. It sounds more like it's a hammock on an X frame. I bet you could make one. Might take a couple tries to get the ratios just right for ultimate comfort, but come on you can it!

    Yeah, it's a lot like that. I prolly could make one but I don't hike much any more.
