    Does Jared ever sleep?

    I finally pulled the trigger on Jared's new modular Trail Winder at 1AM last night.

    Amazing and appreciated!

    I'm not sure how well this would on a slope or uneven terrain.

    I've had some good results from folding the hammock in half and sitting on the double layer. It gets me
