    Thanks to ALL and Professor Griz

    Discovered my ascender rings and Amsteel had arrived while I was gone.
    Went to Grogg's knots.
    Carrick bend to make the loops (This is the preferred way to make a loop right?)
    Prussic knot to two rings.
    Tree Hugger to pole, ascender rings/amsteel to triangle thingy.
    Line from Warbonnet Warbird to ascender rings up and around then up and between the rings...finished each side with a loose half hitch!

    Total weight of this setup with Warbird single 1.7 is
    1 pound 9 ounce!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Who needs a Lite Racer (mine wore out) or a Hyperlite!!!!!!!

    And the beauty of the setup is INSTANT adjustment; as easy as with the webbing carabiner setup; maybe 30-40 seconds longer.
    The vids from Professor Griz led the way....a hundred thank yous

    This was probably preaching to the choir-can you tell I'm thrilled

    Can you post some pics of this?
    He is your friend, your companion, your defender... he is your dog. You are his life, his leader, and master. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of that devotion.

    Pics would still be nice but not essential.
    I've spent nearly an hour watching and re-watching three videos from Griz and tying knots.
    Those are great vids!

    good job Medicine Man, you pass the Hammock Suspension pop quiz, with extra innovation points added for discovering the carrick bend to make the loop...that's a pretty knot.

    Enjoy this for a while (say, a week) and then start to wonder what those splicing guys are up to with their UCRs, and SLSs' and MSLS' and UFOs and Whoopie slings .... <grin>
