    Take a look at the video of The Hickery Bros on the mountain in the rain. Needs prettier faces but thats what its all about! ;-)

Are you showing them off to REI employees to help them understand the advantages to hammocking? Are you planning on having them turned into posters to hang in the store for customers to see? I only ask because some people may not want their photos used in an advertisement or professional publication.
    No posters, advertisements or publication, just used to get staff fired up and to be used for backpacking clinics to impress new backpackers who don't think of hammocks and have no idea what such a thing would be like

    Is this the type of photo you are looking for? To show where a hammock can go and a tent cannot?

    REI needs to buff up the inventory and give some floor space to hammocks in operating mode. If they are going to sell hammocks, they need the tarps, bug nets, and insulation to go with them. The Flagship store has a shelf of ENO's and a Hennessy or two. You can't go camping with just a basic hammock body.

    And showing hammocks in unsafe uses is irresponsible. They are designed to be used 18" off the ground. Wall climbers use them, but wear a harness at all time.
    Thats what I'm working on but I need pictures and video to get people fired up.
