    CLOSED: DIY Bridge

    I don't want to hijack the BRB ebay auction thread. I have received some interest in the DIY bridge I offered on that thread. I am not overly anxious to sell it which is why I haven't listed it before. But to be honest I need to reduce some clutter and I have committed to the HH Explorer with the Super Shelter as my hammock of choice. This one is now extra.

    I don't have specific details on it as I had not intended to sell it but I will compile those and update the post.

    In the mean time, this is no ultralight jobber. It was an experimental idea which resulted in a double layer made with fairly robust fabric. I have been using wood dowels for spreader bars but it did perform nicely with my trekking poles when I set it up ar the NJ Pine Barrens hang in Jan.







    I'll get some more info and post it later in the day. Thanks for the interest.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    So, you offer a product for sale, receive interest, and then open a new thread to solicit additional interest?
    Interesting business model...
    Personally, I'm no longer interested

    Err...the BMB on ebay isn't his, and he only responded to a comment about someone wanting one with a higher weight limit. Starting a separate thread for this was the right thing to do.

    While I understand the BMBH isn't his, I took his post in the BMBH thread as he was selling his DIY bridge

    I have a DIY bridge that I would let go for $75.00 with the option to return it if you don't like it. I'm in the 250 range. PM me if you want more details.
    I PM'd RR about this, he didn't respond, and then listed it again in the for sale forum.
    Personally, I wouldn't offer an item for sale, receive interest and then relist that item (granted in the proper place) to solicit more interest. Perhaps he just didn't want to sell it to me...
    In any case, no big deal...just not the way I would handled things.

    Animal control... you were not the first to express interest. If I am going to provide information requested by severl people I thought this would be the more expedient way to do it. I apologize for your misunderstanding.

    I am hereby withdrawing the hammock from the market.

    Mods...please mark this thread closed. I have decided to keep it rather than take flack.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.
