    Yeah, plus anything below 70 deg F is cold to me. It'll be that way for a while still. Night's are still in the 40s here in Alabama. Once night's get above 70 I probably won't need a quilt.

    Some people just don't get it. I am planning my next bugnet. I got the look from my roommate.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    My wife asked me why if I already have a Hennessey why I need a homemade hammock. I asked her why I didn't need one.

    Next time ask her why she needs that second pair of shoes.

    Actaually you might not want to. I currently do not have a wife/girl friend, commnets like that might not go over well.

    I do it anyway. She gets p.o.ed. You should see the look I get when I tell her we are not going to drive to the store and that we should walk. She says , but I hate the one that is near us, and I tell her that I don't want to spend the money on gas and I don't want to pollute. I end up driving half the time.

    AYCE already has a pretty detailed thread on clo in his archives. Have a look through there and you'll get the info you need.
    “Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall when the wise are banished from the public councils because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded because they flatter the people, in order to betray them.” ~Judge Joseph Story

    Question, instead of making draw string sleeves as Mirages has, why not just make a more tie outs ( 5 or so on the 60 inch ends)? It seems easier than making little tiny pockets for the draw string. Run one rope through the webbing, tie both ends off to a mini biner, and clip the mini biner it to the descending rings. How does that sound?

    Or maybe drop the mini biner and just use toggles?
