    Welcome. Thanks for the history report. However you did not cover the higher math that you brought to the HF bridge building. Most of that just went over my head. But with a lot of input from bridge builders there are several designs out that provide additional options to us. I looked up the old bridge thread and it showed 1352 post. Thats a long bridge.

    Those two passages describe me to a tee.

    I enjoy your videos and your post history is mighty helpful when I get to looking for information.

    Thanks for all the help, Griz!
    If your lucky enough to be outdoors, your lucky enough!

    Thanks for making my years of lurking more valuable Grizz... I have been so pleased with the asym styles by Just Jeff that I have not "crossed that bridge" yet, but your knowledge, style of presentation and attention to detail is so inspiring. I may have to take a weekend or so and attempt a DIY bridge.

    Thanks again for everything you do.
    Happy Trails to one and all.
    Enjoy the outdoors wisely and elevate your perspective.

    Very proud to state that I'm a GrizzBridge owner. SouthMark checked it out before the Roan High Knob Hang and was pleased to see you lie on your side or stomach and have your arms pointed comfortably above your head.
    I've never shook Grizz's hand but I done more business with him than anybody else on this forum and I can tell you that he is a gentleman, a scholar, true to his word, solid in honesty, a huge resource of knowledge, a certified genius, much more than he appears to be, a man I look up too and basically a stand up guy. We are lucky to have his input here. Thanks for all your help Professor Hammock!

    Hello Grizz

    Thanks Grizz, for your elegant intro and for your high-class professor video instructions. I have enjoyed many of your informative videos, posts and have learned a lot about a variety of outdoor science and gear subjects from you.

    Thank you for sharing your experience and passions and with us. I know you have helped me and many others along the way. Your legacy will be long lived.
    I hike with SCISSORS cause it makes me feel dangerous ... LoL
