    Pretty sure I saw a Hennessy hammock on discovery channel

    Last night they had this show where a guy hiked the entire amazon river, took over 2 years! Anyway, a guy joined him and it showed his set up and it looked like a Hennessy. The main guy also had a hammock but I don't know enough about them to identify. Anyone else see it?

    Yea I guess. He said he didn't have a film crew and did all of his own filming. Discovery channel dish network.

    I found a small vid on YouTube about it.
    The short video I seen was them having problems finding water and drinking bad water.
    I really hope they originally had a water filter or some way to purify water when they started out and lost/or broke it. If not , then that guy was stupid for not taking one..
    So for those who seen the program, did they start out with a way to purify water?

    It never really shows either way. But for him to hike 2 years through the amazon I'm sure he had something.

    In the documentary, he mentioned getting some pretty foul water at one point, letting the chunks settle, and then boiling it.
