    Thumbs up Great Vid

    Great vid Shug as always, your approach for trying new ideas and having fun with it is truly inspirational. Many HF members including myself appreciate your entertainment and sharing your trials by fire, in this case snow and ice.

    Working hard at getting my hammock gear slowly together, so I can share in having a little bit of the fun and enjoyment of hammocking as the Shugemerry.

    Just a tip: Your 5-ball juggling against the wall routine isn’t bad. I usually do 9 balls, can do 10 but 9 balls looks better to the audience.

    BTW: It’s about time you re-surfaced Shug. Thought you might have gone back to ground dwelling!


    P.S. This is a test of the “Emergency Down Pod System”. HILLARIOUS

    Thanks for Sharing!!!
    I hike with SCISSORS cause it makes me feel dangerous ... LoL

    Cool video , I really dig the wall bouncing, I don`t juggle but watching that I decided I want to do that wall bouncing . It looks like it would be good for training the mind as well as reflexes. When I walk on the treadmill I like to bounce a medicine ball on the floor on either side of the treadmill , I do it more for the effect of training my mind to multi-task than for the physical benefits . I wonder how many years it would take to be able to do the wall bouncing like that while walking the treadmill. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Those of us with extra gerth may not have the wiggle room that some of the slimer hangers. A very good idea. But I would need an EXTRA wide bag from the sholders to the knees.

    Tough with medicine balls!
    Believe me ... it all takes practice....... the curse.

    Maybe a rectangle gag would work.......
    H-m-m-m-m-m-m. A wee bit of a mod to make it work. They say the Speer Pea-Pod is roomy though.

    For those who need more wiggle room. You would just need to use a semi rec bag instead of a mummy.

    That bag of Shug's is 64 inches girth (65 for size long), which is pretty big compared to most mummy bags. But I agree with you that most of us would probably need a wider bag than Shug might, since he appears to be fairly on the lean and mean side. Of course there are some extrawide bags out there that would work pretty well for this purpose. In fact, I see some of the same Brand that are 67- 69 inches wide!

    Comparatively, a Peapod is 72 inches at the widest point, though much more narrow than that on the ends. Also it's 9 foot length allows you to close it off pretty close to the end with most hammocks, without stretching it too tight and reducing internal room. Even beyond the ends on the Claytor expedition. but once you get serious about stuffing other insulation in there with you – and if you're pretty big boy – then the Polar Pod ought to get the job done. With this extra 1.5 feet of length and width! If I have the specs right, 90 inches of girth! That should swallow everybody and their hammock and some extra insulation, other than maybe a bridge hammock. (actually, I just got up and went outside and measured on my bridge hammock: 77 inches circumference around the outside of the hammock meeting in the middle (need a couple of inches more to cover the spreader bars). 73 inches around the middle including going around my under quilt, though I pulled it tight enough to compress most of the down. So it looks like something of about the size of the Polar Pod might even be somewhat usable with a JRB Bear Mountain Bridge Hammock!
    Apparently, signature that I used from 2006 no longer tolerated so now deleted.

    Interesting stuff there BillyBob. I put my Warbonnet winter Yeti and Black Mamba in for tonight .... -17º. Still feel like I am not terribly compressed. Sounds like the PeaPod is roomy for those that like to bend their legs.
