    AHE forces work stoppage...

    So i had the nephews over, gathering kindling, their 12yr old brother chopping wood, getting the fire pit ready for the weekend.

    Then the mailman drops by with a package.
    "What's that?" They started asking, looking for any distraction.

    "A package from Arrowhead Equipment" I Answer.

    "Is it a hammock?"
    "No"
    "Is it for a hammock?"
    I see my plans starting to crumble, "Yes"

    Well there was no waiting to open the box and out pops the camo goodness of a new custom width Apex upgraded Jarbidge.

    The camo had both the 7 year olds scrambing for the hammock. Taking turns checking it out. It only took a couple minutes but next thing I knew, sleeping on the job were they... Not like I could blame them.

    Soybean (Flyers jacket) and Gman (snoozing) will be psyched to be on the website, and their mothers approve

    Nothing quite like being the cool uncle with all the toys. Like that pattern on the jarbridge. How small does it compress to?

    Not sure yet, once it was out of the bag and in use, it never went back in the bag.

    It is a couple inches wider than a stock Jarbidge.

    Will be bagging it up to take with me later this morning. Going to go hang at my sister's place while the kids finish up breakfast and goof off this morning.

    An estimate would be smaller than a shoebox. I believe there is a photo in the AHE forum somewhere.
