    Maybe I'm starting to think I'll miss my adding machines and spreadsheets. Nah, probably not.
    Subtle mathematician that he is, Cannibal is showing that he can have an odd number, a prime number, and an even number all in one, seeing that "5" is the 6th number in the series of Fibonacci numbers (0,1,1,2,3,5)

    This thread is (golden) spiraling out of control...

    Just had to go and ruin yet another perfectly good thread.

    Now I don't totally blame you since you were called upon. So shame on them too.

    with heaven as my witness, you started it.

    you ain't seen nothing yet as far as hijacking a perfectly good thread.

    Young Cerberus did like his cinch buckle
    Mocking ring-folk, he darkly did chuckle
    But on the AT path
    He failed line tension math
    And landed butt first in deep muck(le)

    Don't get too confident. My inability to do math just means I make everything stronger than necessary. You math geeks are too dependant on your science. When it fails you you will be left with nothing but broken webbing and bruised butts.

    Hey, can someone creative make that into a lymrick or something?
    Let me try...

    Here lies Cannibal,
    he fell and bust is butt!!!

    Not really a poet, and no clue what y'all are talking about, but here it goes:

    A creative hiker from Illinois,
    Used his math skill to shave ounces away.
    His suspension was tight,
    But equations weren't right,
    So on the ground he laid in dismay.

    hey that's good. Although somehow my stuff always ends up heavy.

    here's one

    Br'r Grizz thought he was fine
    hung the hammock with correct angle sine
    but used degree---should be rad*
    his angle was bad
    he busted his butt AND the line


    Grizz

    * admittedly an "inside" joke for those who know the difference between radians and degrees. I am in fact always mis-calculating trig functions by not looking to see whether my calculator is dialed in to interpret the numbers as radians or degrees.

    Thats ok, I understood it. And if I can understand it, that is a miracle. Forget your bridge hammock, ever since you posted the quonset hut pics, I have been very jealous . That thing is awesome, but I would not hike with it.

    Thanks Dwight, but it is smaller packed up, and lighter, than you'd think. 2 lbs. 4 oz in its stuff sack, complete with about 16 feet of 2.8mm Spyderline ridgeline.

    original JRB tarp 19 oz
    overestimate @ door at 8'x4' using 1.3 oz (DWR) 9.25 oz
    estimate 1 ft extend skirt around edge 4 yds using 1.3. sil 5.2 oz

    33.5 oz (over-estimated) of fabric.

    I'd hike with it in the winter...I have hiked with it in the winter. But for other seasons I will go with something lighter and less bulky.

    I bet the Preachaswife could do a business in quonset huts if she wanted.
