A well deserved break in the hammock for you. Enjoyed the photos as well. Have two questions for you if you can help me. What is the difference in Zing It & Lash It ? how hard is it to work with ?
To my knowledge they're both the same thing except Zing-It it bright yellow while Lash-It it gray.

I've heard a few others using a very thin diameter long piece of copper wire to splice and they've had great results also. For me, the key is to compress the rope toward itself in order to open it up to use it for spicing. Funny, after you splice mason's line or Zing-It, splicing amsteel is a breeze!
