Greetings from sunny central California.

That Shug fella is what some folks call a "force multiplier". He (like few others) has affected (or infected?) so many of us hammock folks who have in turn affected others. The result is an explosion of hammocks in the piney woods not to mention the rumor of the phrase "whoooooooooooooooo buddy" being considered for entry into the Oxford Dictionary. Shug is a wealth of information and as entertaining as anybody you'll find.
