Well as most of you know or experienced we had some snow up here in the North East. I live in Mass. and specifically this weekend I was hanging my Hammock in Russell at Moses Scout camp. I was up there doing an OWLS course. Outdoor Webelos Leadership Skills for those not in scouting. Well because we were going to get hit with a fair amount of snow the leaders opted to have everyone sleep inside. Well being the foolish crazy one I asked to still take the option to sleep outside. Well when they found out I was in a hammock they were a little unsure whether or not to let me. So reassuring them and showing them my rig I was able to sleep outside. Thank goodness I was not sure I would have slept inside with the heat and noise. Well wouldn't you know it we got hit hard with 16" of wet snow. Through out all the night there were sounds of breaking branches and falling trees and what not. NON near us though. I made sure to take a long hard look as to what was above me. I had a blast. take a look at the pix and you will see.
