    Thanks for your expertise

    I would like to send out a general thanks to everyone on this forum. I have been one to just sit back and research all the threads out there about making DIY gear. I decided to make a top quilt, under quilt, and hammock all on my own. This forum was an excellent source of ideas and problem solving. I used almost all of the calculators and watched/read many posts. I got to the point where I had analysis paralysis and I finally just jumped in. It's not perfect but I was not shooting for perfection. I made my wife frustrated with everything strewn across the kitchen table for a week so now I have a list of honey-do's to get completed. Thanks again everyone!

    Well done! Feels good doesn't it?
