    Off to your gallary I go!

    I assume you were in the Military at some point, or still enlisted?

    I haven't yet made a DIY hammock but when I do I'm going to try the veil or tulle material. As the noseeum blocks the wind or breeze too much for me. There is a noticable difference when the bug net is close.

    I sprayed mine with Permythrin so that may help with the noseeum level critters.

    Congratulations! Did you take on an additional career or are you happily retired? I would have retired in 2007 had I stayed in.

    Do the Oak Ridge Boys live there? If not I am going to call them out on it.
