    I believe the name was “Green Bean”. R.I.P. Green Bean.
    In order to see what few have seen, you must go where few have gone. And DO what few have done.

    ZING IT Whoopie Sling Results?

    And to honor another old friend...
    SGT Rock
    SGT Rock was US Army infantry, I think he had retired from military. As an infantry man, he had to go on long marches with packs weighing fifty to seventy pounds.

    In civilian afterlife, he still loved camping and backpacking with ultralight gear. No more heavy packs, more like five pound packs for a quick overnight!
    He made numerous YouTube videos, no longer available, that showed his ultralight DIY hammocks and suspensions.
    I would watch his latest videos, just to see what new ideas he would implement as he would ease himself into the lightest hammocks and lightest suspensions. Many times just inches from the ground (in case the suspension snapped)

    SGT Rock had a saying (old timers help Phantom out here, I don’t remember his exact words, help me other old Forum members)
    Did he say?

    “I’m gonna die”
    or
    “You gonna die”

    It was a great saying, helped in part by his delivery and the fact that he had just laid in his hammock, essentially suspended with kite string!

    Old timers, help me get his immortal saying exactly right. Thanks

    @Phantom I found where he wrote it on here once as “Yer gonna die”.
    I wish I could see some of his old videos. I found his thread on a 1 lb system… he could really push the limit. I’m guessing you bring a pound of coffee

    First time I saw someone hanging on 2.2mm Dynaglide I had that thought.
