    Smile VIDEO: Part 10...Hammock How-To...Final, Finale, Fini...Tarps & Bits

    Finally ...... Whooooo Whipped Buddy! Now I know that I left out a bunch of info but that is now your quest ...... to be inspired to research, practice, succeed and fail in your hammock journey.
    There is a lot to it and as I discovered doing these 10 videos .... hammocks are for those that like to dink around and tweak and play.
    *A look at my 11'x6' DIY tarp. My small 3 season one. My favorite tarp. 15 ounces with lines, snakeskins and all.
    *Weathershield .... see my DIY one. 7 ounces. Easy project. JacksrBetter sell a Dri-Ducks poncho mod for a weathershield if you don't want to make one.
    *Added "lifters" to my Warbonnet Winter Yeti UnderQuilt .....
    *An inspirational speech
    *My camp on day one.
    *Morning talk and "Breakfast From The Hammock" POV
    *A peek at my friend Pizza's Warbonnet SuperFly Tarp with Doors.
    *An song to the JRB Old Rag Mountain Top Quilt
    *Morning report Day 2
    *Packa as a wind block

    Thanks for watching some or all of these.

    I HAD to do that...... I have soooo many YouTuber asking me SOOOO many questions. Ususally, the answer is in the video. But I still answer them ... grumble, grumble..
    I just want to put it out there and hope folks do some research on their own. That type of thinking does not always come to fruition...

    And an excellent audible illustration of how to pronounce Gross Grain! (at about 3:22 if you missed it)

    This hole series kind of exploded !
    I haven't been on for awhile, checked in yesterday and found eight more episodes.

    That, was pretty much my yesterday evening

    And now numbero 10 !

    But you are spoiling all the newcomers ,
    imagine all the blood, sweat and tears you are robbing them of .

    I sure would have liked this way back in 2002.
    You don't want to know how long it took me to realize,
    you didn't have freeze your bottom off in a hammock.
    That, you actually could insert a pad in a hammock

    I wouldn't trade those freezing nights for anything !
    Ok, i would.

    Great job Shug !
