    Hanging High

    Saw this at a campground beach this morning, and had to share the view.

    Saner heads prevailed, and about 20 minutes later the hammock was lowered to be the normal 3-4 feet above ground.

    Yup!

    Man I trust my hammock, but still. I still am a little gun shy after the last drop, even though it didn't surprise me.

    Over water, that is a different story. Going to give that another try next week. Shooting for an overnight canoe trip with my dad before I leave on my hike.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    I wonder about those protesters who live up high in California redwoods -- suppose that's a good place for a hammock?

    I think they're trying to protect the trees...they're probably hippies. Go figure.
