    Hennessy Hammock in Afghanistan

    Hello, I used to post here, however, due to my deployment overseas, forgot my old name and password, I have been using my Hammock in Afghanistan throughout my deployment and I can tell you the rest of the guys were sceptical the first time they saw me rigging it up having never seen one before, now they all want one BAD. The only problem I ran into was in the winter with no underpad it was pretty cool, other than that bringing it was the best thing I ever did. Now I am home can't wait to get into Algonquin Park with it fishing. I have a pic of it set up tied off of our armoured vehichle, I would post it here but am unsure how to.

    Cheers

    Welcome back to the forum.

    To post a pic, look at the very top left of the forum and click the 'Gallery' dropdown. From the list, choose 'upload photos' and just fill out the form. That will add the photo to your user gallery and any of the members here can browse it.

    Thanks for your service...welcome home!
    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
