    My First Post

    After a rough night sleeping on a camping trip, I purchased an ENO double nest. I am already hooked. First of all thanks to everybody. I must have read 5000 posts. Did a three night trip labor day weekend to the NC mountains. Learned Slap Straps stretch to much for me, fixed with webbing and buckle purchased from GOP. Another trip coming up so camped in the backyard to practice cold weather (18F) I did fine but learned I did not have enough sag, so I fixed that today with a 99" 6mm. I liked the end covers from Jeff, so the wife is making as we speek. She is cussing in the background for some reason.

    I learn something new everytime I hang, wonder what is in store for the trip in two weeks.

    thanks

    Welcome to the site. You need to take that power tool away from your wife and make your own gear. Those things are dangerous.

    another NC hammocker! welcome to HF.
    maybe we'll meet up on the trail one of these days.
    be sure to take some pictures of those "end covers" when your wife gets them made.
    are they end covers for the hammock or the tarp? ...tim

    The plan now is for the top part of the end cover to attach to a make shift ridge line (patent permitting), the sides will flare out by attaching to the tarp and the bottom will be waited with camp stuff. I plan to attach a mesh shelf for additional storage. Ran out of light today so will work on it some more this week. It is subject to change pending completion.
