    The pics in the album you linked makes me want to be a hanging spelunker; that would be interesting. I wonder if any of those cave explorer types use hammocks. Probably cause too much damage now that I think about it.
    Cannibal: Ed Speer is a life member of the National Speleological Society, and I've been a member off and on since I was 17 (that's at least *cough* 10 years...). He and I talked about cavers using hammocks. It apparently has a tradition, hung up by putting pitons into the cave walls and hanging from them. He went to a few of the cave-in type get-togethers (parties, not actual rock cave-ins), and was surprised that not many of the cavers were interested in using the hammocks for camping. I know that most of the folks I ran around with have the Mexican hammocks they string up around the camp sites. I'm hoping to convert a few over the next few years.

    yeah, that's the guy! great!
    he's apparently one who takes a very realistic look at backpacking gear & lets others know when he finds something he likes, so hopefully he will discover hammocking as a better way to sleep in the outback.
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!
