    From SPUTS to SHANTS

    In the Popuptimes.com forum people would confess their SPUTS (stupid pop up tricks) (like driving off with the stabilizers still down etc).

    I tried to come up with a hammocking acronym that was pronounceable and didn't look like a non-family word, feel free to suggest something better.

    I was reminded of this when reading about the guy who fell out of his hammock while he was sleeping!!

    Here's one of mine:

    Slipping into the middle of a dual layer hammock! (added more velcro to fix)

    what is the dumbest thing you've done connected with hammocking?

    For those times you think you're sitting on the hammock, but it's actually only the underquilt you're planting yourself upon.

    Done that one once.


    Didn't tie a slippery half hitch behind my descender ring suspension

    is another favorite.

    Us bigger guys end up on the ground pretty quick with that move.

    Sat too far back in the hammock and flipped out on my butt

    Being a former Marine, and now in IT, my life was and is full of acronyms (some not so family-friendly ), so what's one more?

    Scooted to far up to the head end while the hammock was in a portable stand. Stand tipped over backward and I was stuck up on my shoulders, feet wrapped around the hammock material pointed about 80 degrees up, flat on the back of my neck, stuck. Took about 5 seconds of kicking my feet around before I could rotate out of the hammock, which had the stand then slapping back down hitting me in the neck.

    At least everyone watching got a laugh. Turns out the floor I was set up on had been under water 6 months before and although the rest of the clubhouse looked pretty good, the floor was pretty much bowl shaped. It was a tippy night BUT it was air conditioned inside and 90+ and muggy outside.
