    Question 11 Days!!!!!!

    You may be asking yourself 11 days till what, well I will tell you! It is 11 days till our Boy Scout camping trip, where I get to test out my setup and show it off to the boys.

    I just hope that I don't end up on my butt

    Do a test hang first! you have 11 days to perfect the setting up of the hammock!
    It's no good looking like a fool in front of the boys, when your gear doesn't cooperate.

    It will also leave a lasting imprint, when you in lightning speed, make your camp and lay back in supreme comfort - and the boys have to go back to ground in their tent's

    +1 on Bombers advice.

    Practice, Practice, Practice.

    I still do a set up test before every hiking trip just to make sure everything is good to go. Have fun dude and take some photos.

    I have done a couple of test runs, I just have not slept in it overnight yet.
