    What a Nightmare - sleeping in my Blackbird

    So I setup my blackbird and pheonix 3season UQ the other night and had a sleep out in the back yard.

    Comfy and cosy I nodded off around 11:30.

    Then it hit me I was freezing and shivering even though the sun was already up I looked and my blackbird was falling apart as I lay in it, the threads were just unravelling themselves, the underquilt was nowhere to be seen.
    I carefully slid out of what was left of my hammock and watched it crumble to dust right in front of me. I was standing cold and without hammock in the middle of the woods. .......... Then I woke up ..... Wow! what a dream! or nightmare you could say. I was still cosy and toasty warm bundled up in my hammock. I then looked out at the stars (I was tarpless) and dozed back off.

    Maybe you should lighten up on your daily Heet nightcap while hammocking.

    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 was almost ready to call FEMA.
    I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority. - E. B. White (1899 - 1985)
