    I started the project. I decided to cut the IX to fit the inside of the PL. Then I cut a nylon cover. My plan is to leave the ends open so I could add a second layer. If all goes well I think I...

    I think it is called Doren Park. It is out on a small piece of land. I am not sure there will be trees big enough to hang. If not we will see how well they can lash.
