    Beautiful video! The sounds from the lake were cool. When I camp by streams/rivers in the winter, sometimes I hear odd things, which I am sure are bears or moose coming to get me, but are probably...

    I don't know the HG hammocks very well so I'm guessing, some are for pullouts, some for attaching accessories (probably?).

    I have one DIY tarp to my name, and I used a flat felled seam for the ridgeline. It's worked great for me, but I have been curious about trying a french seam. I don't know if the french seam is any...

    +1 on the Warbonnet net or cover determining the lay. If you zip the net (or cover) off, the hammock is symmetrical. I'm pretty sure DW and others are the same, the zip on cover determines the lay.

    I have a WB Eldorado also. I leave the continuous loops and ridgeline intact and wash it on gentle cycle, then hang dry. I zip off the bugnet with the elastic pull-out and hand wash it separately.
