    Yeah, I understand. The legislature is an unknown quantity. But is there a reasonable alternative? Should you have to fight that battle at every place you want to go? And if you educate one employee,...

    Hammock promotional video?

    I was checking out posts regarding attitudes of employees of Georgia State Parks regarding the use of hammocks, and responses varied from 'enthusiastic' to 'hostile'. Of course, hostility to the use...

    Interesting suggestion. Wouldn't be tight, though.



    I can see how that would be true, and it's a good suggestion. Problem is, we're now looking at, say, $120+ rather than < $50.
