    I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.

    Looks really good. Does it open up your view more? Did you have to reinforce the whole edge (webbing) or just sew on the loops the pole goes thru?

    I think he will be adding the "Slowhike" mod to the sight soon? I'll have to ask him about that.

    It really doesn't change the view much. On the head side the view is a little better but on the high side I can't reach up and pull the material down to look over. Additionally the spreader bar allows me to sleep with my whole body on one side of the hammock by changing either my feet to the head side or my head over to the feet side, not just in the asym position. I like the way it holds the fabric away from my head and face.
    Here are a couple of pix Marty snapped while I was chillin'.

    The OWLS are so well constructed that no additional reinforcement is needed for this mod.

    Marty is going to add Slowhikes end caps? If so definitely trouble for the wallet....
