    Silly little trick for BB

    My friend liked the idea so I thought I'd share.
    When using My BB as a chair with the netting tossed over the back, I was getting annoyed at having to get up to re-attach the tie out line when I wanted to go to sleep. So I go two little plastic clips and tied one to the little ring on the BB tie out, and the other to a length of small "string". I stake out as normal then unclip the shock cord and clip on the string, flip the netting over the other side and enjoy.
    When I want to go to sleep I flip the netting over, zip most the way up, use the sting to pull the shock cord up to me (it is staked out already and just laying there)and then clip off the tie outs to shock cord. Then it's all nice and staked out without even standing up.
    And yes I am lazy.

    Good trick! Hard to beat being lazy; after "free" it's my favorite four letter word.
    Trust nobody!

    "Laziness is the mother of all invention!" Wait, that's not right... close enough for me!

    Sounds like a good idea to me, I'll be borrowing it in the future, I'm sure.
