    Out of the Wild Hammock?

    Ok I believe I'm saying a true statement when I say that a lot of us are watching Out of the Wild Venezuela. And I'm sure that most of you all have seen "Mike" using a hammock. Now two things, it seems Mike is the only one that is using the hammock sleeping system and second he seems to get better sleep.

    But why does he have to be the one that picks fights. I hate that the guy that is repersenting the hammock community (sorta speak) is the one that has to be most confrontational. Just an observation, and I hope to hear from the HF group on this topic.

    Thanks all Scout

    I just caught this show today while sewing stuff sacks. You know, because I'm manly like that. I don't think people are going to link him with the hammock community just because of that. There more likely going to think he's a butt head because of his shoes or something. Besides, people don't even really know we exist and if they did we can just show them how insane we are with all our DIY gear, winter hangs and top it off with a Shug video.

    The world is not ready for a "SHUG VID". LOL, That guy is awesome brother. Man it really hurts that "Mike" is giving us HC's a bad name. I hope he can bounce back.

    , no commercials!!

    Hammock and bugnet seem like a natural in any environment. Bet he's wishing he had packed a light uq and a tarp tho. I like his hammock stand that he whittled up from surrounding trees. Not a LNT practice, but still very creative and functional.

    I think they have hammocks for everyone. Yeah I saw Mike get up in the night and say he was "freezing". The first thing that came to mind was he doesnt have an UQ. I dont think viewers are gonna link hammocks up with his poor social skills. He is annoying for sure. I mean he walks up to that kid and apologizes for causing a ruckus the night before, and the next word out of his mouth is I need that machete. I think his hot spot is gonna get mysteriously triggered.

    I haven't caught the show yet, though I intend to. But there is one thing I know for sure...

    If everyone would watch Shug videos, there would be world peace. Whooo Buddy!

    If I was that hungry I would be equally as pleasant. From the comfort of my living room I want to try it, but may be a different story once I'm in the middle of it.

    PS. Gargoyle you may want to keep an ear to the ground. My wife flew out of the house this weekend mumbling something about gargoyle hunting. I guess I shouldn't have mentioned it was you that posted the link and burned up 2 hours of grass cutting time.
    Look up before you hook up!!
