    Guys....I'm an idiot

    My very first hang yesterday. I got so excited that I didn't notice the tree was dead. My private shame now becomes public as well

    Hmm. Maybe this is making sense and not wasteful spending

    Thank you, the reminder is well taken. I have become too complacent. Were I love to hang has had a couple of trees fall over in the past year. I know to be careful but I get carried away and do not check out the trees as carefully as I should. We camp in the same spot frequently and i just set up, I do not check out carefull like I should.

    Thank you for sharing your experience, glad to hear you are fine.
