    Day dreaming

    How many people catch themselves day dreaming of hanging while driving? With the work I do I am always driving and checking out trees and then I start imagining me and my hammock being on the trees.

    Hard to get miles looking at all the great hangs. I'm always wishing I would have gone an extra mile when I stumble (sometimes literally) across a killer hang spot. So many trees, so little time.
    Trust nobody!

    Why doesn't one of you computer programers write a program to measure the distance between trees on a satellite image of your favorite area, and color all the distances that fall within hanging range, something like that. I have a friend who takes those images, puts them into Photoshop and separates thousands of colors. He finds large boulders this way as well as trails that don't show up on the actual photo.

    That's me to the tee. I have to drive down to south central KY twice a week and while driving down the interstate and the other roads I travel I am always looking at the hanging spots.

    But there is also Rule No. 1 for a hanging spot:
    if you can see it from the road, its no good!

    I wouldn't say I day dream about hanging anymore. Just being out there is what is always on my mind.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    I agree. Hammocks are nice, but they are ultimately a means to an end. They allow for more comfortable sleep in the backcountry, but just BEING in the backcountry is the real reward for me.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    I've only just started, but I am often dreaming/scheming of new hammock gear that I can make.
    Every time I'm out hiking, though, I keep catching myself looking for/spotting hanging spots. It really frees you up, compared to the tent... I love it!
