    Mr. Grizz,
    I have learned lots, and enjoyed your videos and postings here on HF. Many thanks for your contributions. You are part of what makes this fun.

    Truth be known (don't tell Shug ) I saw and watched all the Professor Hammock videos first in my quest into the trees. Learned a TON . I wasn't convinced a bridge was my cuppa tea, but your info has value without bounds! Then I found Shug's and he sealed the deal, for me, into a gathered end set up. Thanks for the foundation of my hammock camping knowledge Grizz!

    Grizz has great legs in a kilt (as seen at the 2010 Hoosier Hang).
    Your videos and creativity have been an inspiration to myself and many others.

    Thanks Grizz for your videos about bridge-hammocks. l'll have to build one for my gf as she is a stomach sleeper and won't camp out with a gathered-end.

    Hope you'll find some time again to hang out from time to time!

    Thanks for sharing your story. I too have benefitted from your postings and videos. With your promotion of bridge hammocks, I have been thinking I will one day have to try one out. Hope life slows down for you a little so you can post more knowledge for us to absorb.

    Thanks for your many ideas Grizz!

    Between you and Shug I have been entertained and informed since discovering HF several years ago. It is nice to be able to follow the evolution of hammock ideas via teh videos that you have posted. Always thoughtful and well-crafted.

    I like this new trend, and this was a great read on my tuesday morning before work. Thanks Grizz for another well written thread.

    Definitely one of my influences for getting back in. Thanks for that.
