Good video, enjoyed watching
The pack falling down the hill was / is based on a real experience told to me (Minutes after it happened) just north of Damascus, I met a neighbor / fellow hammocker of mine (He lives 3 miles from my PT job) first thing in the AM, & he was fairly winded for it being so early. He told me his story: "I set up in a really cool spot right on a hill. Slept like a baby & woke to a neat view, you couldn't have put a tent within 50' of me.
Well, I was just finishing packing up, had the pack leaning against one of the trees I hung from, turned to pick up something & heard an odd noise. I knew instantly it was my pack, with my newly replaced camera* in an outside pocket, falling head over heels down the hill I was on.
So, the reason I'm out of breath, I just climbed that hill."
Yea, it was a steep one. I invented the pack leash then & there, with the first one being 550 cord. The current model does double duty as a hammock suspension extender. My pack leash is 4' long.
*my friend had this camera less than 24 hrs. Thankfully, it was undamaged, the first one got broken during a similar fall the week before.
