    I know you were sorry for this, but i busted a gut when i first read it sounds exactly what my buddies would do to me or vice versa.
    I couldn't believe it when I woke up; I knew if couldn't have missed it when I set up the night before. But where could it have come from? Started the day out in a hilarious way..and I can't think of a better way to start a day. If you get the chance to hang with FLRider, don't pass it up! He is one ingenious and entertaining dude!

    I believe the region-specific response to that is, "Aw, shucks."

    Looking forward to the next hang!

    It was good to have you out there. I learned a thing or three from you, as well. I tried the overhand knot with the PLUQ suspension Sunday night and it worked like a charm. Thanks a lot for pointing that out; it helped eliminate the slight CBS I was having.
    Your welcome.

    Not an issue for the rack, just dont want to drive into the backyard every time I want to hang.

    I went to the local home improvment store and bought two ten feet 4x4 posts. I'm gonna chamfer the corners then sink them three feet into the ground to hang from. I'll keep you posted.

    The trip was very relaxing. Love to get out in the woods with great company. Was very impressed with the gear that Fla rider and offceb made. The bushwacking was a new and enjoyable thing for me. Hope to do it again soon.

    Most definitely. It's an impressive piece of sewing, especially when seen next to my...ahem...not so picturesque seams.
