    Thank you Shug

    As someone new to hammocking as a backpacking method I want to thank Shug for his work in compiling his infamous videos. They are not only informative but down right hysterical. I got a ton of knowledge out of them and was thoroughly entertained. I actually watched all 10 of them, and consider myself better for it.

    Thank you.

    I've watched all ten videos several times, as well as his other vids. Never fails to make me smile!

    And very encouraging too...

    Alright, so I'm watching these videos, one after another, and I come to the inescapable conclusion - Hey, if this guy can do it... JK

    Yes we all owe a debt of gratitude to the Shug.

    And getting an original "wooo buddy" on your thread is one of the highest honors a thread can aspire to!

    So many trees, so little time...
    We follow where the Swamp Fox guides,
    His friends and merry men are we;
    And when the troop of Tarleton rides,
    We burrow in the cypress tree.
    The turfy hammock is our bed,
    Our home is in the red deer's den,
    Our roof, the tree-top overhead,
    For we are wild and hunted men.

    I'd like to chime in as well. They have been a tremendous help. I haven't even gotten my hammock yet and I feel confident in setting it up. Plus, you're freakin' hilarious man! Kudos to what you do, and keep them coming please! ;]

    Shug inspired me to get into winter camping. His videos rock!

    Shug is the penultimate weapon of hang instruction with world wide ramifications.
    unique, loved and followed by millions.
    it is my, and probably most HF'ers goal to hang with Shug someday.
