    Extreme Weather Shelter on steroids ... or on drugs.

    Are we doing it all wrong?! LOL ReallyBigMonkey1 shows us how he suspends his "extreme weather" (and widowmaker-proof) shelter.

    As he said a few years back:
    To me, extreme weather can be several things. Wind in the form of socking the cold right thru you or snapping off branches and them falling on you. rain can beat down your tarp or tent and even wash the ground out from under you in extreme circumstances.This is the shelter I use in those conditions to get a good nights sleep.

    Rain Man, ain’t many better ways to unwind, reduce stress, than to watch ReallyBigMonkey show bushcrafting and survival methods on YouTube!
    I used to think he was dumb—after watching more of his antics, I don’t think he is any dumber than me. The gloves and dew rag bandana match perfectly with his Southern drawl—all this can obscure his deep thoughts about survival in different challenging wilderness scenarios.

    Other practicalities aside — such as carrying a machete and 200 feet of rope — imagine constructing that shelter while it's raining!
    UL, because nobody ever asks "How can I make my pack heavier?"
