    Ridge Runner mods?

    So who's played with the modin Ridgerunner. I just set up my first mod a ridgeline made out of shock cord with my Stickpic on it set up so I can hold my iPhone in place. Just did a FaceTime chat with my wife totally hands-free from the hammock.

    So what is everybody else come up with so far?

    I replaced the anchor buckle that attaches the dog bones to the suspension with amsteel soft shackles so that I can quickly switch the suspension or install a Spindrift sock.

    And it is a nice setup. But I find it a bit snug in the middle. No place to put my elbows. Is there such a thing as a Dbl wide bridge?

    Unless you bought the no-bugnet RR, a noseeum bug net is a standard feature of the RidgeRunner.

    I added a light duty ridge line in mine to hang a light and glasses. Works great.

    Yup, got in on the deal for the no-net, mostly for winter use. Just thought it would be nice to have a bugnet addon for later.

    The cover lays on the existing net. Adding a net would be a lot more work....
