    Why call it the Banyan?

    Any ideas why Dutch’s new bridge hammock is called the Banyan? Reference to the Banyan tree? If so why? The logo is cool!

    I still think the name Bridgemeleon would have been awesome.

    I think the guy that came up with "Prussick" was trying to name it "Canyon."

    It's Chinese slang for a bad onion - a banyan.

    Close there is a Banyan bridge in Hong Kong, but I suspect the naming was inspired by the Indian Banyan root bridges?
