Had an interesting lunch yesterday. One of my guys over here in Indonesia and I stopped at a local restaurant out side of Surabaya and near an Army base. A Captain in the Indonesia Army saw the Gorge Rat Patch on my messenger bag and started a conversation which involve sharing some photos on my iPhone of the Gorge and pictures of hammocks caught his attention.
Not sure how this will pan out but he took my business card and said he'd make sure to get me an Indonesia Miliary Jungle Hammock to take back with me. If it happens great ... I'm sure it's heavy but hey it's a hammock and who knows what features it may have that we can clone to something else.
I'll be posting pic's if and when he delivers ... never know about these things. But it got me to thinking. Some might say that's not necessarily a good thing ... but any of you guys or gals have any military hammock gear? How about posting pictures here if you do.
My very first hammock back in the 70's was a Vietnam era Jungle Hammock ... loved it and hated it. Wish I'd kept it.
