    Thanks, I am pretty happy with this setup; quite pleased, to be exact. I want to get out and sleep in it now. I was planning on it this weekend, but my business has been so good. that I now have to work this Saturday to keep up, and I am not complaining. Flippen gnats, skeeters, high temps, and humidity are so bad right now, that camping isn't a fantastic idea right now anyway.

    Nighttime air temps in the 50's or lower can happen all summer here, and probably in Iowa too. I predict your next project will be an underquilt - maybe a summer UQ out of insultex? You've done a great job; keep up the good work. Nice photos. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks guys. Yea, I will have to do an underquilt so I have the complete setup. SH, it's coming. I also just 90% finished a 14 man tipi I made out of a military parachute by removing 6 panels, and installing a 6' zipper door. I need a pole for it and sew a stove jack in it to complete it.

    Really nice looking setup you made!

    You're gonna love that size tarp out there in a good rain. Lots of room to spread out...

    Congratulations- great job!

    I am surprised that no one noticed that in my 1st pics of the tie down that the tarp is upside down.

    That looks store bought, not home grown. (That reminds me of two brothers I used to know in Ardmore. That was their nicknames. Honestly.)

    Very nice work.

    Here are some pics of a huge front sun porch setup. This is where these hammock/tarp setups shine imo, especially in warm weather, over a tent. You can setup so many variations and the hammock can be used as a chair to sit in for eating or just sitting in.

    On the ridgeline it's not too critical since a failure doesn't result in a fall. Just be aware that the thread used to secure a bury is to prevent it from sliding out when unloaded but does not provide any strength to the bury.
