    OOps.. sorry misdirected appreciation!! Good work Neutron!!

    Great testing MM! there, you get a little too.
    Depending on what the cost is and the final color choice (I'd want something a bit more earthy/neutral) I'd most likely be in for 3 yards.

    So let me get this straight, you just said how much Poof weighs...out loud, and put it on the internet. Thats a bold move my friend, a bold move.

    Nice hammock tho'. I wonder if it will develop a "pocket" in the sweet spot if you pick a head end and stick to it. My old cotton brazilian hammock had a definite pocket, but I slept in it every night in the same spot.
    Good luck,

    Guess what? I found some M55. Source was about out. I did not ask about the color. I was happy to get whatever I could find. Hopefully it will not let Poof's 145 pounds drop (as reported by MedicineMan). Video will be coming in about one week after its arrival dependent upon MedicineMan’s schedule. Black Wolf - waiting anxiously I suspect. Hopefully he will choose a soft spot to land in if it gives way.

    Neutron, good job on finding some M55. If this holds up to some testing I'll be looking for three yards of M55 to make me a new hammock.

    Just spent a cold, windy, and rainy night on top of Roan Mountain in the Double M50. It did not let me down. It sleeps great. I just need a warmer top quilt!

    I would had slept better if I could had found a snore muffler for MedicineMan. Anyone know a source?
