    Sheesh.... i would rather have my WB - but i could do it for 5 minutes

    (Seriously though: man what a place to hang!(in my WB))

    Edit: Does anyone on HF do Custom Carbon fiber work? Cause a Champagne cooler in CF with a matching stand would be perfect(then i just need some freezedried Champagne(!?!?)and a way to make ice cubes on the beach)

    You know you are a hammock geek when you don't look at the scenery you instead check out the suspension and think of ways you can make it better.

    Wow! I think I could make do!

    . . . Swap out the champagne for iced down barley beverages and add a micro tarp for shade, 60" flatscreen, floating grill with lobsters, . . . . . . just realized I am still at work.

    But no worries if it breaks. The event ends in a nice cooling splash.

    Cooling? Last summer, the water at Key Biscayne in FL was around 90 degrees in the shallows.... It was like being in a jacuzzi in the hot sun...

    Of course, here in San Diego, the ocean temp right now is around 62 degrees...
