Aww Mate , No Way!
That's one hell of a first trip with your hammock. I think I have dreams of kayaking with whales in crystal clear waters. It did look a bit challenging to find Trees to hang from. That dose seem to be the one downside to Hammock camping. Fortunately I live in an area with lots of Trees. I think I'll be happy to have the chance if running into Bears or Wolves over lots of poisonous little creatures you may not see and step on! Great pictures! Thanks for sharing!
