Hanging the hammock chair

Hanging a hammock chair

It took us about four years to find a dry spot for the hammock chair Sheila gave us.  But the actual hanging only took fifteen minutes, including cutting the chain.

Hanging cost: $1.60 quick link plus $2.15 chain.  Watching the first lightning bugs while swinging on the porch: priceless.

I would really love to get a hammock on our back porch, I think it would really set the atmosphere for our landscaping. Thanks for the tips on how we can hang it up, now I just have to figure what to get. I've been looking on to get some ideas on what styles and prices are like, but I don't know what the benefits of each kind are. Any ideas for why people get a certain style of hammock?
