    I am so glad I roasted coffee today, to enjoy when I arise early tomorrow anxiously looking for part 2. Who needs T.V. with real life adventure like this? Most nights hammock forums trumps t.v., but this video was exceptionally good even in the rarified realms of Hammock Forum delightfulness. Could there be more perfect musical scoring than that caterpillar sequence?
    I will be breaking my recent ruling that I can not open hammock forums until I have earned a mid-morning coffee break. Great video, Fronkey. Caleb, you are a brave grasshopper.

    That is exactly what I was thinking watching this... I could just see Fronkey standing on top of a mountain shouting at the poor kid Major Payne style..."This ain't the Marines son... I will leave you behind!"... and then he did.

    Good to see you back man! Hope the hike went well, the cuz is still alive and you had a good time. That's some crazy mileage you put on. Waiting on the sequel.

    Cheers!

    Well Fronkey; you've sure caused a buzz. I think all my feelings have been covered already. You sure put on the miles. Good trick by your girlfriend. Look forward to pt 2. Good to see you back.

    Was your cousin kidnapped by the old man? That dude was creepy......

    Well it ain't Vietnam - as long as he had food and water, he could hang his hammock anywhere and chill. I admire Fronkey for searching so diligently for his cousin. It certainly makes for a suspenseful video.

    Part 2: Will Fronkey find his cousin? STAY TUNED!

    OK, we are now 15 minutes into "tomorrow". Where is parts two?

    Fronkey, looks like a great hike with the clear and cool weather. Thanks for letting us into your trip.

    Had to re-watch it :)

    and I'm just as curious about the future vid of the arctic exped. I've seen BlackWolf's vids and can't imagine when the two of you get together on that project! I'd ask for more clues on where and which arctic but most fret over Caleb for the moment.
