    No you have not, I am planning a video to explain how I folded the ends and a new whipping technique I used to lock in the suspension and ridgline cords.
    I'll try to get to it soon.
    Thanks

    Gunn Parker's arrow stake, using... arrows!

    Ever since NCPatrick told me he cut the ends off of his Guide Gear tarp, I have been wondering what is the best way to use them as-is. Gunn Parker has it!

    Here's his stake-out, using real arrows!

    I looked outside this afternoon, and little birds were checking out my hammock! One flew into the Bishop Bag, and another hopped into the KAQ, actually went down between the UQ and the hammock!

    You should see a little bird try to sit on a bungie tie-out cord!

    Hey, I like the pitch on the tarp as well, I got the Funky Forest Tarp in the Air Bivy deal at REI and am excited to try this. I see your in Perth, I have some relatives in Subiaco. Where do you usually get out to hang?

    Only an Irishman would do something like that!

    A Scot would walk 500 miles, and a Scot would walk 500 more, just to be the man who walked 1,000 miles to get his arrow back!
