    Hammock Camping IN trees?

    Saw this photo on BING today, and thought that I would share.

    Its a proven fact that 78.4% of all statstics are made up on the spot.

    It's like a place to sleep and a place to......well, you know. Just hope nobody is looking up.

    It looks like one of those climbing cots simply hung from a tree with a bugnet rather than off the side of a sheer cliff.

    I'll see if I can find some photos of what I mean.

    Yeah, I think that they are Port-a-Ledges not technically hammocks....

    wow those guys hanging off the side of the cliff is quite something, there would be no getting your gear back if it fell out

    They've done studies, you know.
    60% of the time it works, every time.
