    What a contraption!

    I had thought about going on a quick hang this weekend. But being Easter, and my mom coming into to town to visit, I really didn't have the time. So I compromised with myself and decided on a backyard hang. I don't have trees in my yard but I have made a turtledog stand. Just needed a way to hang my tarp as well. So here is my solution. I don't know what to call itbut it worked. The desire to hang is a very powerful thing!

    Is this mom's guest room? I hope you plan to provide a coffee pot and stove for an early riser

    I call it good use of common sense, what a way to go. Good work my friend.
    If you prepare for failure you will probably succeed.

    That IS quite contraption. No body can sneak up on you in the night because they would kill themselves on guylines.
    Keep movin', keep believing and enjoy the journey!
