    First time setup!

    So after getting my Skeeter beeter pro, I rushed to the yard, found the perfect trees, and began to set everything up. I decided I was going to add a structural ridge line, so I turned the hammock over so that I didn't have to fiddle with the netting while adjusting the ridge line. Well, as luck would have it, after sitting in my hammock for the first 5 seconds, I feel a nice wet plop! I had been dookied on by a bird...but that didn't stop me. Some warm water and a rag got me cleaned up and on my way to hanging heaven!! Just thought I'd share my first experience.

    Friends on Maui and down in Venezuela both commented it is good luck to get dookied on. Different worlds same response. Based on that it looks like your hammock has been blessed with good fortune.

    One of my favorite things to say is, "We have two choices in life, we can be the pigeon or the statue." And that is no bulldookie.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.
