    My kit is almost complete :D

    Everything is coming together and even though I know I'll never be finished... I am getting close to not having any gaps in what I want for right now

    • Tarp (check) - one purchased and one DIY in the next month or two
    • Tarp suspension (my most recent item to check off) - just got my zing-it, tarp flyz, Dutch hooks, made some Prusik loops and zing-it soft shakles last night
    • Hammock (check) - one DIY (works great) that I want to add a foot box to in the near future and a 1.1 DL WBBB which I can't live without
    • TQ (half check) - currently using an old, bulky, heavy sleeping bag but am part way through a 40* Ray Way quilt kit and am also going to repurpose a 40* fleece sleeping bag thing to a top quilt
    • Hammock suspension (check) - DIY straps and whoopie slings plus what came with the WBBB
    • UQ (check) - DIY IX quilt that got me down to 39* in my DIY hammock plus the 20* Phoenix that I won at the 2nd Annual FL Hang raffle (love it!)
    • Odds and ends (mostly check) - a few little bits and pieces still to do like put my Dutch ridge biners in both of my hammocks, some sort of storage option for inside, a tyvek piece for standing on (coming next weekend at the hang down here), make a portable stand and put it up in the house so I can sleep inside year round, etc


    I really don't NEED anything... now I'm just expanding my temperature range, lowering weight/bulk, fine tuning... and feeding the addiction. It's been a great ride so far and I want to thank everyone on this forum for all of their advice, help, gifts, insights, entertainment, and overall greatness! I'm pretty sure my daughter wants me to make her a hammock so that is another of my next projects (along with a portable stand so she can set it up in her dorm).

    Thanks everyone... I'll see some of you next weekend at the LWRSF hang!

    The operative word in your title is "almost". It will be like that forever I think.
