"What about the weight of you landing on him?"
I do understand I could hurt him a little (or maybe a lot) if my suspension broke but I weigh that against him getting out of the upper bunk and breaking an arm or leg or he could also hurt me by falling on me and keep the sole bread winner out of work for a while and put the rest of the family in jeopardy. Sometimes in life you have to trust your gear and take a little risk if I thought it was a bigger risk I wouldn't do it. That being said if we find the right tree set up I'll do side by side setup and I have a little less to worry about.
Thanks for the changing room reminder - I have a white tarp (shadows) so I'll have to make sure to change in the outhouse or bring my potty tent from the camper.
