    DIYd some new Huggers and RLs

    Went into "DIY mode" this weekend and knocked a few items off the To-Do list. Spliced a couple of new Ridge Lines using some recently aquired DutchWare (Hooks & Flyz) and Dynaglide, I just ordered a new Cuben Tarp from HammockGear and the anticipation is killing me...

    In addition, I have DutchWare-Whoopie Hooks on the way so I thread injected some new tree straps. I'm going to Larks Head
    the whoopies to the straps so I went a little different with the loops on these (actually, I zoned in front of the Injector and got a bit creative) Felt they were worth a couple of pics

    Are those loops double stitched? Like zig-zagged at 4mm and then again at 6mm or something along those lines? I've wondered if that's beneficial.

    Nice work dude! Down the road we should all have monogrammed straps.
