    Thumbs up I'm Grizz Bridgin'.......

    Good to know the Grizz ...... In conversation I happened to mention the fact that my body has never been in a bridge hammock.
    Grizz ever being the advocate for bridging has been kind enough to bring me into a whole new world of hammocking.
    Slept in it last night ..... very comfy ... although I kept wanting to sleep on a diagonal!
    No shoulder squeeze experienced here...... and my feet were very comfortable.
    Now my world is bigger and my choices all the more choicely........
    I thankee Grizz for expanding my world even mo'........ if only the world operated as we do on here...... kindness is prevalent.
    Whoooooo Buddy ... here, here to Quants!!!!!!!

    Nice! Like the label too!
    Looking forward to some new bridge-hangin' video!

    Quick question for shug or grizz: is there amsteel within the edge seams, webbing, or just a rolled edge of the ripstop? And any chance you post a close up picture of where the spreader bar inserts to the corner of the fabric? DIYer hoping to learn more from the masters.

    Thanks for the send-up shug. Glad you like it. It feels different, maybe
    even an acquired taste, definitely great for flat on back.

    BER-its 1/2" polyester tubular webbing from Sailrite.

    More pictures including pole to hammock here

    they're calling my flight....

    Most excellent, Professor! Thank you for the quick reply and additional pictures. Just so happen to have a bunch of that tubular webbing, and poles, and material, and amsteel. Now just need time.
