    When trip reports get in the wrong hands

    I don't generally tell anyone about my YouTube trip reports, other than you fine HF members. My 13-year-old son Shelf Life, however, thinks my trip reports are hilarious, and he shares them with his friends.

    As I walk down the street, kids I don't even know yell out, "Fubba28 (my YouTube name)!! Love the vids!"

    Tonight I went to my son's first basketball game of the season. A man walks up to me and says, "Fubba28 - love your videos. I hope one of the major networks pick you up 'cause you're hilarious. How come you haven't put out a new video in a while?" I don't even know this guy but he's watching my YouTube videos about hammock camping? Go figure.

    Hopefully, my next YouTube vid will be entitled "Staring at Kaia and Kayak Karl's butt for 18 miles on the Batona Trail."

    I don't think Shug has to worry. I can see how the kids, all of whom I coach, would find the whole hammock camping thing rather funny. They're always laughing at my backyard testing and the videos are just another thing to bust my chops about. What I find odd is that parents would watch them and find them hilarious. "Hey, Dad! Come in here! Coach Farrell has a YouTube channel about hammocks and hammock camping! It's hilarious!"

    What's so darn funny about hammock camping? It ain't that strange to me!
