    Not just trees. Between two pickup trucks parked at the grocery store, the pallet racks at work, even sign posts! I'm always eyeing distances for that prime 12'-15' span. Bridges get a lot of attention, too.

    Tell me straight, Doc. Will I live?

    Since you asked, yes you'll live.

    I've reminded my wife that I could be spending my money on booze, drugs, and women... but I can't even consider that until I'm done upgrading my gear.

    Might be awhile too. I don't even own any Cuben Fiber goodies... yet.

    I guess I am lucky. My wife is pretty supportive, except for the expense sometimes.But hey even then, someimes she is supportive there too. I just got the blackbird, and she is still letting me get a clark nx-250.

    So far my wife is cool with it, even naps in my full time setup once in a while. My main bullying comes from my riding pals. They want me to carry some of there gear because I have so much less stuff. Lol tenters!!!!!

    Wow.

    Also, my wife is pretty supportive of my habit. I pay for it out of my monthly allowance (that my wife and I give ourselves) so it doesn't cost "us" any money, and it gets me out of the house when I have the time to go do things...and these days, that's bloody good for me. Clears my head.

    She ribs me once in a while, particularly when I go on a gear-buying blitz or go "hang out with those internet people," but I know it's all in good fun. She does tell people from time to time "Go ask John about his new hammock addiction, he'll talk your ear off" but I feel like it's all in good fun, and the people generally seem pretty interested.

    Now if I were pissing blood, she'd never let me back out.

    On one trip, my friend with his 60-lb. pack overflowing with junk looked at my GoLite Jam 50L pack, noted it wasn't full, and asked me to carry some of his junk. He got really pissed when I said "abso-fricking-lutely not." I told him to buy a bigger pack if he wanted to carry more junk, though I think he's already using a 90 liter.

    The nerve of some people.

    Next time you're heading out, tell her you're looking forward to hiking with your girlfriend, who doesn't harass you about hiking and hanging.

    Once your wounds heal, your wife will think simply going hiking or hammocking is no big deal any more.

    And "I hike 'til I piss blood!" should be on a bumper sticker. I'd buy one.
