    very cool hammock. Love the camo colors. great stitching as well
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    @Knotty...
    Nice idea on the bungee channel...I might try that on the next one.

    @Kayt...
    I have to say, I was thinking about your videos with a giggle on more than one occasion...as I shunned rulers, markers and and pins...eyeballed up some features cave-man style and went! I thought you would have shuddered to see that in action

    All thumbs up this weekend!

    I got out for two night with the boys, all three of us in hammocks for the first time. Temps just below freezing one night, just above freezing the next...

    Picture our setup, my DIY is all the way to the left...boys are in HHs that had the zipper Mod #4.

    Looks like you did a great job.
    ... but tell me it isn't as it appears...
    did you order a fancy down UQ for you, but nothing for the boys?
    Looks chilly
    (I'm really just teasing you... I can see some insulation inside the one HH that is closest in the picture. I'm sure you didn't let the boys freeze)

    I made my kids UQs out of their sleeping bags. Worked great, and was as simple as adding 4 little loops of grosgrain... one at the middle of each side on the ends.
    I did all 3 bags in about 30 min.

    LOL...you have a sharp eye...
    We have some winter incubators on the way...any day now....

    But for that weekend, the boys had pad as a base layer, a 20F bag on top of that (doubled over), they they were inside a 20F bag, and on top of that, they had a 20F bag as a blanket.

    On the second, warmer night, the bottom bag actually had condensation. We could have removed the pad, but who could have known...
