After no small amount of research and discussing ideas, and thinking and fretting and learning and video watching, I pulled the trigger tonight.
Brandon was back and forth with me on email a bunch today regarding the ridge runner and bridge style hammocks in general, and I appreciated his time.
So I sat this evening and reviewed everything I'd bookmarked to this date.
While I had my heart set on a bridge, because I felt that would be best for me, I'm opting for a gathered end.
Now, I did want a larger tarp than WB offered, so I snagged a 13x11 silnylon unit from Amazon to pair up with the hammock. Why so large you may ask? So I can park my motorcycle under it, I shall answer...
Now to settle in for a few weeks and wait for the gear.
I owe a debt to everyone here who helped answer my questions - thank you.
