I got out the bridge I made during the winter and hung it in the back yard and its also great, made to Grizzy Adam's plans. I didn't get a good hang in it this winter in my garage because the places in the garage where I had to hang from were too high. When I put the tension on it it needed, it was great.
    Went mountain biking before we returned from the forest.
    Terrific time in a terrific Bear Mountain Bridge.
    Yep looks like this one is a keeper. I might just go hang my bridge this weekend.

    Probably not. The current bug-net works just fine and is easy to put on and take off.
    My only gripe with velcro/omni tape bug-nets is waking up half the forrest when you have to water the leaves or fertlize the hills.

    This weekend my wife and I were in the Adirondacks - she was in a top loader and I was in a Hennessy. Nature called in the middle of the night. It was chilly and I didn't really want to exit the warm hammock so when I did, I said "what the heck, might as well get out instead of thinking about it all night" and pushed at the velcro with both feet. Scared the bejesus out of my wife who thought lightning had hit nearby! Woke me up more than I wanted to be, too. The dog came running to investigate. Even the bullfrogs on the lake shut up for a minute.

    Velcro is a godsend but it has its drawback, too. Great job on the zipper, Mule. I am going to send my Hennessy to 2Questions for the zipper mod this week!
