    Past the Point of No Return...

    I think I have passed the point of no return when i find myself hitting refresh on the new posts link every 30 min to see whats new... or when the wife and i i sit down for the evening with popcorn and a coke to watch 2 hours of Shug... or when i have a dream about a new hammock rig i can design... sigh... isn't it wonderful lol

    screw my friends that make fun of my obsession... they all stop laughing when they set up camp next to me for the first time... all of them
    I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I have not lived.
    -Henry David Thoreau

    You only hit new post every 30 minutes??? no you are only still in the early stages of HO (hammock obsession) when that time drops down to 10-15 seconds between refreshes then you are late stage and hope is starting to dwindle for a recovery. Me I am terminal I hit it every few seconds.

    Sorry, but no real health problem only has TWO letters. Gotta have THREE at least. How about HOS? Or, HOD.
