    Saturday was to be the first night. I don't think I'm going to make it. I've had some things come up that will prevent me from making it. I was really looking forward to this trip.

    I would suggest an adjustable ridgeline. I like dynaglide as it is quite strong and lightweight.

    I looked up that rope. It looks like it is a 12 strand version of Amsteel. I wish I could get my hands on some of that.

    For ridgelines, I really like dynaglide. It comes in bright orange and super bright green. For suspension, I like either amsteel whoopie slings, or cinch buckles. Both work great.
