    Grizzly Adams has some great instructional videos on youtube I would check out if I were you. Make yourself a Grizz Bridge

    When I first started on the journey to comfortable sleeping in the woods, I spent a whole lot of time looking at each manufacturers versions of a 'hammock'. With each of them it was - 'like that feature, don't like that part'. I just couldn't find one that I liked everything about.

    Then I found the Grizz Bridge - and then I realized that with only a couple of very minor changes, just because I can - my 'absolutely perfect for me' hammock was very possible.

    Be prepared to watch each segment of Grizz's construction video's multiple times and have a notepad handy.

    Oh yea, try as I might and as good at math as I am, the string on the wall trick for doing the cat cuts worked easier for me - course I also had access to french curves and my seamstresses flex curve tools.

    Move down to the "Do-It-Yourself" forum and ask away.
