    Pan & Smee,

    Good article but who were those youngsters posing as you two? Good to see Certain, too. A well-deserved piece of media coverage.

    Good article. Congrats on the exposure.

    To nitpick the author, though -

    HF wasn't linked or mentioned, despite a gallery pic from here being used in the article.

    You guys look happy, so the pics obviously weren't taken during your hike to the MAHHA Spring Hang.

    Nice article.

    The author speaks

    Thanks for the kind words, I was hoping it wasn't too obvious that I'd never slept one night in a hammock.

    Angry Sparrow e-mailed me with word of the omissions he noted.

    I did visit this site when researching the story; it just happened that i structured the story in such a way as to make it a bit inconvenient to mention hammockforums. But seeing as how this is where all the hammock talk is happening, I've asked my editor to stick a reference into the article anyway. It would break up the literary flow a bit, but it's worth it (and besides, it's not exactly literature we're talking about here).

    A more serious infraction happened purely by accident: one of the Jacks sent me the picture of them smoking cigars and it didn't occur to me at the time to ask who actually took the picture.

    Angry Sparrow pointed out it had been posted here, and gave me the name of the actual photographer, so we'll add a credit to that picture as well.

    Again, congrats to the Jacks for this story.
