      No, I've not yet posted pics or construction details, not for lack
      of intent.

      I've been so busy designing and constructing that my efforts to
      document online have fallen behind. I desperately need to
      reorganize my website and make more useful and descriptive.

      The hammock is 1.1oz nylon, folded ends, whipped with the hang lines
      (3/8" poly line), 10' poly pro webbing "tree huggers", and home made
      snake skins. The hammock rough dimensions are 8'x4', although I
      believe I will add another 6" to the length in my next interation.

      The bug netting is hard top describe, but will hopefully be clear
      from the pictures (when I post them). It wraps around the outside
      of the underquilt/peapod, but does not completely enclose it (like I
      said, hard to describe).

      You've seen my cat tarps before, nothing new there.

      Suprisingly, the ranger on duty this weekend had never seen anyone
      use a hammock for over night sleeping!! She was very impressed with
      the concept and how light it and compact it was.
