    Mod 5+???

    Just a question for 2QZQ... I m thinking about having a zipper installed - along with a MOD 4 upgrade, on my HH Exped Asym, *Vertically* in the actual bugnetting itself. Don't know if it can be done easily, but it came to me in a dream, as I lay in the hammock during a recent stealth hang in NH.

    The zipper would be about 1/3 of the way down from the head end, and go up to the ridgeline. This is on top of the regular Mod-4 zipper installations. Maybe it needs to be integrated a different way. Dunno.

    Food for thought!

    At any rate, I will be sending my hammock along for the Mod-4 upgrade right after the NE/Vermont hang next weekend.

    Thanks for all you do!

    I'm going to need a picture/drawing for that one. I'm not seeing any advantage of a vertical zipper to the ridgeline.

    ====> Nebber mind..... makes no sense to ME now, either! One can get a little carried away with this stuff ....I still want the Mod-4 upgrade after the next hang, and some Griz Beaks on my Hex fly, and the gear pockets ... This HH Exped will be a rockin' hammock then!!!

    Sorry for the dumb question ... seemed like a good idea at the time ...there was alcohol involved, and not in a stove, either!

    I will be in touch after the hang next weekend.
