    looks like fun, but you'd have to rig up some way to pee.

    I read a book called "Wild Trees" that talks about the first folks to explore and measure the Giant Redwoods. They used to sleep up in the tree tops with hammocks. There's a documentary on Netflix about them too. Unique experience for sure.

    I think it is a national geographic documentary called Climbing Redwood Giants or something like that.

    Oh I did see this in the Netflix, I qued it up. I think it is called the Redwood Giants, or something like that. I am pretty sure it is by National Geographic. The photo for it on the netflix through my Xbox has that yellow box around the photo so I am assuming Nat Geo.
