      Nice report Thomas. I especially like the pictures. I don't know if you
      planned it this way or what, but the picture of the bubble pad on the tile
      floor was ingenious! At first, I thought the camera was tilted and this was
      the reason for the tapered pad. Then after staring at the pic a minute I
      realized the tile lines were perpendicular. A great use of background to
      convey sizing proportions.

      12 x 12 tiles tell the tale. Lighting was off, but I can t be perfect. I use this background for a lot of gear pictures, I should probably note the tile size

        the tile size in a report some day.

          Hi Thomas,

          Here are your edits for the Hennessy Hammock Deep Jungle Hammock.

          Overall, excellent report and good use of photos. Seems to be lots of
          extra spaces. Could be yahoo.

          You know the drill.

          Edit: For consistency Snakeskins should be Snake Skins. I checked on
          the website and in most places it is 2 words.

          Comment: Shouldn't you use what was supplied with the hammock and make
          a note of it in your report stating that the straps are too short.
