    Alfred Percival Maudslay (March 18, 1850 - January 22, 1931), British colonial diplomat, explorer and archaeologist. He was one of the first Europeans to study Mayan ruins. This picture was taken at Chichen Itza in 1889. He's got some serious sag in that hammock.

    I think Shug would look "dashing" in that pith helmet, though.

    Yes he does. I hope it had plenty of width to go with it. Good stuff! Thanks.

    See the article on Page 86 of the August 2010 Popular Mechanics Magazine entitled: "Hang a Hammock"
    "Pips"
    Mountains have a dreamy way
    Of folding up a noisy day
    In quiet covers, cool and gray.

    Stumbled across this with a google image search:

    That's a nice hammock stand!


    BTW... anybody else notice the picture of Oprah hanging in a hammock on the magazines in the grocery store line recently? She's apparently never been told to lay diagonally in a Brazilian...
