    Smile City Slingin'

    Took my Doublenest out for a freestyle hang around Chicago. Found a great spot under the "L" by DePaul for an afternoon nap!

    Anyone know of any must hang spots here in the city?

    Very cool! If you loosen those straps a bit you will get more sag and a more comfortable lie. And don't forget to lay on the diagonal!

    The pack is a Molle II Assault pack, ordered it off ebay and it has been phenomenally versatile and durable. I reccommend military gear when possible since it is built for the roughest conditions in the world!

    Would have loved to loosen the straps a bit more but the crossbar on the underside caused a clearance issue, it fit just enough to swing with my 180lbs in it!

    One gets used to the sound of a train overhead, my Bose Triports make sleeping a bit easier The vibrations are interesting though!

    You're brave. Give me bears *any* day - you can keep the denizens of Chicago. Cool pics but not for this guy.

    Chicago has Bears and Cubs! Fortunately neither are very intimidating

    Sounds like a good title for a new post.... (in reference to the old Newlywed Game classic video....), Where is the strangest place you've ever hung (Pics necessary!)
    .... the Aardvark (earth pig)... a rather unremarkable creature whose sole claim to fame is that it is the first animal listed in the dictionary.
