    I kid you not. That 3 second clip with all of my pets took over 20 minutes to film. Thanks a lot for watching!
    I have no doubt ... I worked 3 months of trying to film Spencer doing the head tilt that I use at the end of my videos. He does it all the time but point a camera at him and he turns away! Finally got past his resolve ... with bacon!

    Great instructions. How wide was your fabric? I'm looking for height from ridgeline to bottom net. Good job.

    Haha, that's what I used! Man, Kiba and Spencer would get along great.

    Great bug net and very well illustrated. When I lived in Alaska I really thought the Mosquitos were big but Minnesota has bigger ones. Not sure the bug net is strong enough to stop them????

    Looks great! I think this is how I'll end up doing mine now. What did you do for where your suspension goes through the netting? Just leave a little gap or did you reinforce it with something?

    I can't wait for my material to show up so I can get some protection from the FL muskytoes

    You lived in Alaska? I was there for 5 months. Man, we are going to have some good conversations in a couple weeks at the Northern hang.

    I left a little gap to slide my suspension on through. It doesn't need any extra support however, you could hem that little section where the gap is if you wanted to to make it look a little nice. I did this on one of the nets I made for a friend. Good luck dude and if you need help, just let me know.

    Excellent timing.
    Today I was with my wife at the local "Hobby Lobby" and purchased some Tulle netting....so was searching for some ideas and walla...found your video.

    Just what I was needing. Thanks! Nice work.

    AND your PETS listened so well!!!

    Well done! I do like your aproach. I like the ability to reach outside the rig without unzipping and letting critters in.

    Thanks for taking the time to share this! Way cool!

    Sweet video and instructions dude! If I didn't have DIY hammock w/ net already I probably would make one...Let's be honest, I probably will anyway

    They should probably make this bad boy a STICKY.
    Just when I thought you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this... and totally redeem yourself!
