    I really dig that pocket. Precursor to the shelf maybe?

    I have to agree. I have learned most of what I know about hammocks from these two friends.

    Great to see you present a video on the hammock. I had not seen it. Of course it was great to see both of you in the same production.

    Sweet vid.

    Shug, your videos are the best I swear. I have a co-worker that has no interest in camping or hammocking whatsoever and has watched your videos simply for the entertainment value. My fault as he watched one with me over my shoulder.

    I have one of the WB eldorado hammocks as well. Was Jeef's who sold it to Peter and then to me. I Tried selling it just before my move to Ontario however complications arose with the transaction and I had to back out simply because I ran out of time.

    I still have it. Since, my girlfriend has laid claimed it. Now I just need to get around to upgrading the suspension to whoopies and add an adjustable ridgeline to it. I wish it were a DL hammock so it could support my weight but alas, it's not.

    Great job Shug. I could see these vids (Slogging on Manitou in Finland, Minnesota) easily being put on the Discovery channel, they are that good. Again, if you are ever near Raleigh, give me a holler and I'll burn some beef on the grill for ya.

    Thanks shug! I'd never seen how the Eldorado lays when loaded. Really interesting geometry.

    T'was steel shutters actually. The neighbors put them in, and shut them down when shug gets visitors.

    The time was swift in it's passing....thus we got what we got but Grizz got some too!!!!
    yes indeedy. Here's a hint....next video from me that is a review of some piece of equipment that here shall remain un-named, it's time to play "Where's shug?"

    It's the uncertainty principle at play, actually. "Camping queer" (Meg's term) uncertainty. Only now just starting to be understood. Had the bright boys baffled for a long while it did. Only by diligent study of videos by shug and self did the outlines of a theory begin to emerge. Kinda worried about the experimental evaluation part though, overtones of Schrödinger's cat-cut in there.

    I'm thinking yes. That seed was planted in Brandon's fertile mind.

    Welcome to the Eldorado club!!!! You know, if you want to make a killing, MedicineMan would shell out a lot of $$ for that Eldorado of yours. As it is the lightest fully enclosed hammock I have, I'm keeping mine. But I'm just saying....
