    1. Get pictures or it did not happen.
    2. You never have enough hammocks
    3. Its not an addiction unless you are trying to stop
    4. Do not hang higher that you are willing to fall
    5. Its just a hobby, its just a hobby, its just a hobby....
    6. Its not a sewing machine, its a thread injector.
    7. Dutch Clips have magical properties
    8. Do not covet your neighbors hammock
    9. There is always a better way to hang your hammock and or tarp
    10. You describe your latest trip by the places you hung your hammock
    11. You hope your wife kicks you out of the bed so you can hang in the back yard.
    12. You are not an official hammock hanger until you have watched all of Shug's videos

    That is hilarious. I would have to agree with every single one of those. I am currently about 3/4's through Shug's videos, and about to order my third hammock, and just started getting into this about 2 weeks ago.

    I have a contender for rule # 13
    13. At some point you will fall on your butt in an ungraceful manner while exiting your hammock, and it will always be in front of an audience of ground dwellers who scoff at your hammock hanging ways.

    Awesome! So I guess that means I'm a real hanger. The only problem is I didn't get pictures of me watching all of Shug's videos so I guess I never did.

    Perfect rules, and heck I bet half of current HF members are here because they saw that crazy ginger headed Shug running around in one way or another. I saw his videos and ended up signing up for the hopes that hesnot the only one like that, although I suspect he is.

    My fiance and I were watching Shugs videos on my 10' home theater screen. It's quite epic when he's life size in your livingroom!
