    noob needs info

    I ordered the WB Traveler w/bug net, and Brian was kind enough to suggest I leave off the suspension, since I want to go with whoopie slings. I also want to go with the lightest tree huggers I can find. Is there a difference in weight or are they all the same? Also, where do I go to get snakeskins and black bishop bags?
    thanks,
    leigh

    Reptilian Derma Layers are a very easy DIY project. You can make them up in a real short time as long as you have a thread injector you can use. I deomonstrate them in the second of my We Don't Sew vids. Real simple and a whole lot cheaper than HH. (But don't tell anyone you got the idea from me.)
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    "Bless you child, when you set out to thread a needle don't hold the thread still and fetch the needle up to it; hold the needle still and poke the thread at it; that's the way a woman most always does, but a man always does t'other way."
