    FYI Be aware that if by some chance you do get arrested for tresspassing that you probably wont be able to ship off to boot camp as planned. They usually delay you by 3-6 months. Worked as a recruiter for 2 years.

    I appreciate the heads up. The worst they'll happen is a sit down with my manager and being nicely asked not spend the night on the premises.

    I did the same thing September 2010 except I didn't know about hammocking last year so i slept in my car or in my tent. All my co-workers know about my month of homelessness last year. Most know about this year too, I'm just not telling them I'm hanging my hammock behind the truck garage.
    If you don't try due to fear of failure you've already failed due to fear.

    Good luck space cadet.

    At least you will be very comfy in the hammock. One of the camo tarps could come in handy.

    And you are sure there are no security cameras? Might be an uncomfortable meeting with your boss and a tv.

    I would try looking for a campground local that you could hang in. Just seems to me that not giving them all the details is asking for forgiveness/trouble, and I will let you guess which I get into more...

    Anthony of the Opie and Anthony show lived out of his car for a spell. He had to move it often because he was behind on the payments as well.

    Last night was my first night, and other than my feet getting a bit cold, it went well. I'll keep y'all updated on my adventure.

    Have you got your hammock insulation (top & bottom) squared away? You might have a few chilly nights before shipping out.

    There are cameras but non that point back there. I'm really not worried about it.

    I have a Leigh Lo Summer UQ that'll take me down to 40* I don't anticipate it getting much colder any time soon. I'm using a sleeping bag on top. I don't know its rating. I also have a fleece blanket and 2nd sleeping bag in my car.
    If you don't try due to fear of failure you've already failed due to fear.
