    "It's a winch hammock." That's pretty good! Going to have to go and try that. I can't say it ever occurred to me until now!

    Sureeee! It's all fun and games until your significant other is an early riser and decides to make a quick run into town to suprise you with hot coffee and donuts.

    Reminds me of a famous (aka. fateful) quote, "Here. Hold my beer... I've got an idea." (Not a criticism. The temptation to "go there" was just too great.)

    Clever, indeed!
    “Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, cigar in one hand, whiskey in the other, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”

    A "Wench" hammock might be more interesting

    3)Sees squirrel, deer, or other distraction
    4)Wonders what that weird tearing noise is
    5)DOOOOOH!!!
    6)Hopes Jeep seat are comfy

    That's how it would go for me anyway

    Love the idea. May have to try that out fishing some evening with my Power Wagon.

    As to sleeping in a jeep if you rip your hammock.....I took my boy and his freinds camping many years ago. Full moon, warm night, i went to bed and in the morning could not find them in their tents. I went to my Jeep. One asleep in each front seat, one asleep in the back seat, and two sleeping on the roof rack on a foam pad. So I had a Jeep Wrangler this only carries four legally but sleeps 5 comfortably. Great weekend.
