    My hangin' spot

    So, I decided to say "I don't care what people think about me, I'm putting up my hammock". After my Nano7 was taken by my Girlfriend, I put up my TTTM King size hammock (that I bought from forum member BER). Then others wanted to try out my hammocks, so I put out my Homemade bridge made from Grizz's tutorial on HF. With all three hammocks, I felt cool, the others were jealous, and I owe it all to the forums! Thanks guys!

    Keep in mind that these trees are on a college campus (PLU, Washington) in between 3 dorms. No privacy, but lots of praise for the hammocks, and lots of weird looks.

    This is my setup. Where do you like to hang? Pics are always fun. :-)

    These are the pictures from this last weekend which I'll repeat this weekend if the weather is nice.

    Nice! That looks like something I would do and I'm sure you had a good time hanging out there. I especially enjoyed the labeling on the pics.

    That's too funny.... See I just brought me hammock to work this morning (and I work on a college campus, NMT).... was contemplating a lunchtime siesta.

    No camera at work though. Screenshot or it didn't happen, right? I'm tempted to tie off to the rails on the balcony (it's all steel and concrete), but maybe I'll work up the energy to walk a little ways off to the trees.

    With my luck they'll turn the sprinklers on at about 12:30..

    Hammocks are comfortable where ever you put them, and girls came to lay in your rig, whats not to like.

    He doesn't believe you? As a younger kid, I so would have had a hammock if fates allowed...

    Yup. Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA. I'm working on a Music Composition/Religion double major at the moment. Awesome school and I'm the 12th person in my family to go to PLU.

    True. Maybe I can "test" the whoopies on my TTTM King, and see how many girls I can get in the hammock. Hmm..

    I'm waiting for pictures of other favorite hanging spots from you guys!
