    So I'll be buying from questoutfitters.com.

    I just need to figure out what length pole I need.
    You could what someone did in the Superfly no-sew mini-pole mod thread: attach a pole with a prussik on one side and let the excess stick out.
    If you don't have an extra tent pole lying around to try this, you probably need to add 3-4 inches to the distance between the pull-outs. For reference you could again look at the Superfly pole mod thread.

    The one you reference is not for the Tadpole. Randy has one specifically for the Tadpole that was not on the site as of yesterday. Its brand new.

    Hey UpHill, I hope you get a chance to put this together before the NoVa hang, I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

    Based on a conversation I had with 2Q, I may be sending him (his wife) my OES Deluxe to have the single, under side pole set up installed.

    I hope to put the HammockGear cuben up this weekend in the backyard, and test out configurations/tie outs - it's taken everything in me not to do it in the dark when I get home from work!

    I've been feeling the same about getting out in the new hammock. I also just read the thread about the hot water bottle trick, which I will totally be doing at NoVa.

    C'mon thanksgiving, I'm ready for ya.

    Have any Pics of the new Hammock you can post yet? That's funny, I was thinking the same thing about the hot water bottle thread! We'll probably need it! That said, I've tried to stop carrying Nalgene bottles due to the weight, but it might have to be a winter exception.

    Does carrying Nalgenes take a big hit on your gas mileage? Don't forget, this is car camping (something I didn't take into consideration at MAHHA).
