    We have two new converts. Like shooting fish in a barrel.

    The funny part was that while we were doing this, a woman neighbor was driving past (on this very quiet residential street). She stopped the car, came over to look at this thing, asked a bunch of questions, was dumbfounded at the elegant simplicity of the idea, and went on her way converted.

    Good story. I am starting to take the passive approach to converting. If people see me and ask I talk about it. If not I'll only mention it when they are complaining about how bad they feel.

    Although this is more a theory than anything else. Most times I'm out I am either by myself seeing no one or with someone else who hammocks.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?
