I am a big fan of youtube, you can learn to do anything on there and I learn things easier by watching. Dave Canterbury of Dual Survival fame is my second favorite after Shug. Dave's latest vidoe is about hammocks and the padding looks like a good idea, but his use of rope and tiny little open hooks gives me pause. I've used rope when I need my straps for other things but was under to impression it was bad for the tree. That tiny little hook just looks silly.

I use a crappy app on my phone to come here, so I dont know how or if I can put a link to the video. Please one of you PC cowboys help me out and put the link in your reply.
