    Extreme Hammocking 101

    I always wondered how to enter/exit an elevated hammock . . .

    . . . I just found this . . .

    seems ideal, i'll probably start hanging my hammock about that high

    I like this idea as you get two for the price of one - hammock and bear bag.

    Does this mean we can start sleeping with our food?

    Would kind of suck if you forgot how high you were when you got up in the middle of the night....not a bad idea in bear country though. Hang your food AND yourself...

    That would be one hell of a midnight pee. Oh you ever get that feeling of falling when your asleep and it wakes you up, this time the wake up would hurt a little.

    Relax... Relax some more
    What? I don't think I could relax at that height knowing how often I have to get up in the middle of the night to pee.
