    addiction taking over vs. discount

    alright, after my 10th hammock i decided "this is it", but then----- i realize(after a lot of full price fabric i might add), that it you buy the magazine at jo-anns you get a lot of nice discount cupons in the back(33-50 percent!)sooo--diy bridge, here i come!!

    Well then, that's better.
    10 DIY and 5 commercial rigs and you've only been a member here since June? I believe you have some potential. Gonna have to keep my eye on you.

    i blame shug__the"Marlboro man" of hammocks( on a serious note, thought id share the bit about the cupons,in case anyone else missed it, 3 bucks for a magazine can meen a lot of savings)

    Why stop now?

    I don't have a problem...I just purchased my first hammock and received it Tuesday. Before it even came in I jumped on the Hennessey demo sale and snagged an Expedition, a few snake skins, a large hex fly, and an over cover...I can honestly say though that I was sleeping my first night in my hammock before the money for the second one hit the bank! I've got a few pads and am on my way to making my own UQ. I don't think my money knew what hit it!

    Oh no, I've got to catch up

    I have only 6 commercial hammocks and 5 completed DIY projects...I'm falling behind.

    I would blame Shug too; he makes juggling, BBQing and hammocking look so easy yet then with a little practice I found out that they are. And light on the pocket book too WHOOO BUDDY.

    Seriously though, my next/current adventure is also a bridge hammock, please keep us posted, I'd love to see your bridge. Oh yea, and find out how far I'm falling behind.

    ive actually already finished a bridge, slept in it this weekend with varying results. used amsteel instead of straps down the side and hardwood spreaders. had a few issues with it though, so decided to "take it back to formula" so to speek, try to get pics as new one progresses.
