Is Amsteel a conductor of electricity?
Most of us know lightening goes from the ground up, but even if it went 'tree' down it 'senses' the path of least resistance. How it knows there is a length of Amsteel in its path either way I don't know but it just does!
So say it does arc from the wet ground and hits your hammock (with you in it) then it runs toward the tree in its desire to reach higher (like us hammock hangers) what happens when it hits the Amsteel?
And for those who think lightening goes from the sky to the ground samy question, it runs down the tree and for some crazy reason decides to go to you and the hammock despite the easier route down the tree, what happens when it hits the Amsteel?
Next question so you can start thinking about it now it how does having a Dutch Biner in-line affect this transmission but don't answer that yet.
