    Hammock Uncut - Challenge #1 - Fair Weather Set-up

    At the recent Arizona Hang, Swingblade and I took our sweet time setting up our hammocks and tarps, and during the conversation, we talked about how fast it can be to set up a hammock.

    SO, I thought it would be fun to set up a series of challenges. Here's the first one:

    Fair Weather Challenge

    RULES/GUIDELINES

    1. Have fun!
    2. Time yourself setting up your hammock and under quilt (or pad/other insulation).
    3. You must lay in your hammock after each set.
    4. Time yourself taking down your quilt/insulation and hammock.
    5. Post your UNCUT video (no editing during the setup/take-down) and post your video to the forum.

    This is just a fun challenge to see how quickly a hammock can be set for a fair weather evening where no tarp/rain cover is needed. Future challenges will include more complicated set-ups to see how things compare.

    Here's my entry. I'm sure someone can beat my time as I was pretty relaxed about setting up. Also, I was shooting with my new iPhone, and the only place I could balance it was on a log, so everything is a bit slanted.

    I wish I was making videos! Alas, bills must be paid so to work I must go.
    Since it's dark by the time I get home from work, I'll have to wait till the weekend. Still, this should be fun. Bet I'm nowhere near the fastest mark that gets posted.
    Trust nobody!

    I was thinking of hosting something like this at the Spring MAHHA.

    Vertigo : The Hanging of a Bridge Hammock

    Got mine done. Compare dejoha's and mine and you'll appreciate the extra number of steps to put a bridge hammock up.

    There are a few steps I'd have to take in the field that I didn't have to here, that naturally would increase the time. On this hang I didn't need to adjust the whoopie slings, that's unusual. On this hang the height of the hammock was good enough the first time, not always the case.

    There are other tidbits of possible interest here, but you'll have to watch to find them
