    One of those may have been one of my hammocks. I sent a couple of hammocks over there to people that were serving. For whatever reason, they were both 'tank guys'; didn't know each other at the time. Both hammocks were ENO Singles.

    I can sleep anywhere, often under my desk at work :-). I'm not calling myself extrem. No matter where I go a hammock seems to work better than sleeping on the ground. I live in Orange county TX. I have grown gills to keep up with the humidity. I have slept through a Cat 1 Hurricane in about 90 Degrees heat. I wrapped the tarp so It wouldn't blow away. I was tied between two pylons on a Fishing Pier which mostly washed away during Ike.. http://www.geocities.com/bobbykeziah/ Great Shark Fishing.

    http://www.tshaonline.org/handbook/o...s/OO/hco3.html
    The climate in Orange County is subtropical humid with the highest annual rainfall in the state. The annual precipitation average is fifty-six inches, and the average humidity is 89 percent at 6:00 A.M. and 69 percent at 6:00 P.M. The annual average temperature is 68 F, with average temperatures ranging in January from a low of 42 F to a high of 61 F and in July from 74 F to 91 F.

    My hat is humbly off, to the extreme DIY team of Hammock Forums.

    You do all the work. Develop the idea, and then give it to us for free.
    You take great pains to build a tutorial for the average idiot so that
    our first attempt looks and performs exactly like your finished model,
    which may have had several generations of prototypes. And then
    you stick around and field technical questions and provide expert
    advice and assistance.

    There are several people here that spring to mind instantly.
    (forgive me if I miss someone here right off the hop)

    Your projects are hugely innovative and inspiring. Your finished pieces
    make me drool with envy. And your tutorials are clear and concise.

    Headchange4U, Warbonnetguy, Blackbishop - You make things that
    look as good if not better than store bought. Your DIY skills make
    me weep. Walking into your gear closet would be like walking into
    a very elite and custom boutique gear shop. You get ideas, and
    they just seem to magically transform into designs of pure awesomeness.

    TeeDee, 2Questions, Ramblinrev - The efforts you have put into
    documenting and creating How to Instrustions enable anyone to follow
    in your footsteps and produce a result they can be proud of. I intend
    to enroll in more of your courses in Hammock school as soon as I have
    more free time. You do a HUGE service to this community.


    But if I am forced to pick just one... my nomination for THE most
    extreme hammocker of this community, it would have to be this ....

    GrizzlyAdams - a.k.a, Professor Hammock. Reading your posts and
    articles makes me think I am student of some kind of Hammock University.
    You show us the math, physics, the engineering. You answer the really
    hard questions from us students like Why? and How? You have a vast
    ocean of knowledge and information, from which you seem to be able
    to call opon at a whim. And you still calmly and patiently take the time
    to guide newcomers, or those with little experience. So wether you're
    merely working towards a B.A in Hennessy's or a Masters Degree in
    Bridge Hammocks, there is something to be gained by anyone attending
    one of professor hammocks lectures. Your threads are like actually going
    to school and when I step in late I feel like Im suddenly cramming for
    an exam and desparately trying to just take notes and keep up

    he fails to mention trivial little details such as, lack of any decent clothing
    or insulation. Ice in that mans veins I tell you. Thats extreme.


    I also gotta second Shug on the opposite side of the weather spectrum. I will never be
    one of those people that take a tropical vacation, or trek through the arid deserts of
    the south. The heat just kills me. I work outside exposed to the elements for 8 months
    out of 12, and on those rare days when the mercury climbs into the 90's or hits triple
    digits I am drowing in an ocean of sweat, dizzy, disoriented, and sometimes racked with
    bouts of vomitting. Its a miserable way to get through your work day. I am always
    amazed and impressed by the stories I read of hangers that actually hike and burn
    up calories trekking through that kind of heat and climate.

    Too bad it's a federal crime to mess with saguaros which is about the only cacti you could hang off of. Don't even know how sturdy they are but I'd rather not find out with a trip to federal pen

    Over breakfast after Mt Rogers, Ed Speer told us about his kayak trip through the inside passage, where he figured out a way to hoist himself, in his hammock, 20' up into the trees each night, to avoid grizzlies... that's extreme!

    Yup, that was surely an extreme hang!

    Please do tell, of this seemingly impossible manuever. You have peaked my curiosity on this idea.
