    I'm sure he would do the same for the cameraman.
    It's bad luck to be superstitious.

    Lol this was me the first time putting my hammock up. Wind was over 30mph and I wasn't sure what I was doing.

    Guys are the same everywhere. Just keep laughing and recording when a buddy is in trouble.
    Looks like he got spun around and ended up laying on the bugnet.

    ROFL - and the guy in the hammock has just begun to feel his pain. His buddies will be laughing at this incident for years to come.

    His buddy laughing tore me up. Heck, not even the dogs knew for sure what to do. Years ago I was helping a buddy transplant some rather large pine trees in his back yard. I fell into one of the large muddy holes head first, all caught on video with the roar of laughter in the back ground. One of those can't make it up type moments...

    Glad you all liked it...
