    Going to ground

    My brother asked me to come up and help him cook for a youth group camping in Lexington KY.
    He tells me the closest trees will be 100 yds. apart so I'm taking my hammock and a tent, prepared to go to ground.

    Wish me luck...o-o-h my aching back!
    He is your friend, your companion, your defender... he is your dog. You are his life, his leader, and master. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of that devotion.

    You could always whip up a turtllady bamboo stand to take along.

    Good luck

    I see a one tree hang in your future.
    I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority. - E. B. White (1899 - 1985)

    Not to sure what it would do to your door seals or hammock suspension but I love the whole RV vs minivan tagline at the start of the video!

    He is lucky not to be messing up his paint job with the overhead straps. Nice place for continuous loops, nacabiners, and a whoopie, tho.

    If you find the right kind of tree, one is enough.

    Set up between your car and a tree. I've done it a few times at this type of event (helpful if you can get your car close enough.

    You're going with kids? What else are they for? Have a bunch hold one end and another bunch in the other and, Viola! Happy hammocking! If you can her them to hold still all night so you can sleep and write a book, I'll buy it! ;-)
