    hammock camping videos

    I am a new disciple of hammock camping. What two entities could have such a glorious marriage other than hammock and camping? I've always loved hammocks, the mayan sisal type hammock, that you can fan out in, from the yucatan, mostly. Once I bought my first, an HH, I thought I had found some secret that had been kept from me.
    We camp because we are enthralled with the outdoors. We love our gear because it facilitates. Why then, are ALL the videos I can find on the internet, only about the gear?
    Sometimes at work Ill steal a moment, search on youtube "hammock camping" (because daydreaming is as exciting as pre-trip anxiety for me) and find only gear reviews, and for the most part, videos fairly lacking.
    Thank shug there's shug, to remind us how much fun we can have, slopped into an oxford nylon taco.

    am I alone on this?

    Dig a little deeper here and find the cool trip report videos that were posted this fall. We have some talented videographers amongst us who have inspired others to start filming and editing. One example comes to mind:Try searching for Linville Gorge reports and see if you find something you like.

    We are too busy sleeping. Hammock comfort leads to long nights sleeping. I don't see alot of "camping videos" from either side (tents or hammocks) most are trip reports or gear reports. Not quite sure what your looking for in a 'hammock camping' video.

    Welcome! Glad you joined so you can help direct the revolution!

    Gear is a running theme... along with the beauty of the woods, the people we hike with, and the character of the videographer. Lately, video editing tricks have been thrown into the mix!

    Looking forward to videos of exciting hammocking adventure! Horror hammocks, hammocks of danger, hammocks of intrigue, drama, and soul searching hammock docu-dramas. Not hammock suspension, hammock suspense! Go for it!

    ... and welcome to HF!

    For anyone that wants to do some video editing, Woot.com has Pinnacle Studio Ultimate Version 12 on sale today for 50 bucks. I am thinking about getting it.
