Anyone willing to loan HE a bridge hammock please contact him at Nate@pocketmail.com
. He has had to sleep on the ground
I'm sorry to hear that he has become injured. I'm also sad to hear he isn't comfortable in his hammock.
I would generously give him my Bridge if it was useable. However, it's become a tortured prototype that I wouldn't trust on the trail. It's also isn't complete. I still haven't come up with a solution for 'field' spreader bars and a few other things.
I have some of the materials to make another one but not all. I wouldn't feel too comfortable sending him something unless I was confident in the design.
Perhaps JRB could lend him one? I don't know much about the patent stuff but if you make something and just lend it to someone (not sell) are you violating patents?
Unfortunately, the timing is just a bit off. I was hoping to try some new things in the coming weeks.
