    I was halfway expecting to see the Shug man jump from one hammock to the next until he had lept across the entire armada, but another fine video from the grand master. Well done Shug, well done indeed.
    Happy Trails to one and all.
    Enjoy the outdoors wisely and elevate your perspective.

    Hi Shug.

    I don't know if it's my eyes playing tricks or not, but I notice when I watch your video, looks to me there's some stretch in your single layer Warbonnet Blackbird Hammock. I was contemplating on another hammock, for those days when I know there is no insects to bother me, to save some weight.

    My Warbonnet Blackbird 1.1 double is 700 grams including Whoopieslings and tree straps. I like the looks of your other gathered end hammocks, but by the time you add all the straps, I don't know if there's going to be much of a weight saving. I'm 180 pounds, think I'll stick to double layers or heavier weight material if i'm going for a single layer hammock.

    Thanks for your video, It's been very interesting.

    Informative AND entertaining Shug, as usual!
    I always look forward to your next video - whether it's about hammocks or barbecue smoking.

    Have a safe and prosperous 'busy season' so you gan get those poor under-used hammocks out for a group hang soon

    It's kinda surprising, finding out that you really only have five hammocks for the number of videos you do on them; I almost figured you were like Cannibal, with enough to do a different one each day for a month. Then again, thinking back on most of your videos, I think that Green Bean DIY has shown up on 75%+ of them now that I search my indexed memories of 'em.

    Good video, and I hope this year's trials and tribulations are profitable and fun!




    I try to do the same thing in my posts when I give figures, but do you know the Google search trick? Pull up Google (or, if you have it as your search engine in the top bar of your browser, plug this in there) and type in "convert x units to y units". Example: "convert 325 grams to ounces", and it'll spit out 11.464 ounces. You still have to plug in the units, but it's a lot faster than finding the conversion tables and doing it yourself. Hope it helps!

    It looks that way when I sit straight up in it...which i really don't do that much. Sure is comfy sleeping though.......
