    How many read the book in a hammock?

    So I got Dejoha's book and my new WB traveler 1.7 single in the mail on the same day (yesterday) When all the running around was done for the day, I set up my new hammock, UQ/TQ and tarp in the back yard on my DIY hammock stand. Along with that I brought out my stove and cup and made some tea, snuggled in my downy goodness and read the book until I fell asleep and woke up this morning to about 24mph winds...It rained all night so that drowned out the freeway I live next to. From what I read it has been a great book (I read about half of it last night.)

    So how many have read the "Ultimate Hang" while hanging in there hammock?


    Ya, ya, pics otherwise it didn't happen. Personally I didn't feel like taking pictures in pouring rain and 20+winds this morning...It was, get the down items into the house, and then go back for the hammock and tarp. I'll do pics when it clears a bit more. The wind is gone, but the rain is not. I need to post pics of the DIY hammock stand any way. Just built it last week.

    I do

    Well, I also edited the book in a hammock, put models in hammocks to do illustrations for the book, and basically ate, drank, and slept with hammocks for more than a year with this book.

    I'll post pics after Thanksgiving

    I read the last fourth of the book while in my hammock a couple of weekends ago at a hang that I put on (my first group hang ever).

    I did a first view, quick perusal at home. I'm heading out tomorrow for 2 days of hangin' in the hammock and will be reading through the book at that time. I'll be joined by a few others and I hope to have this as one of our main topics of discussion. I've purposely waited for time in the hammock to absorb, enjoy, and discuss this book.

    I was reading it in my hammock 2 weekends ago. I got a chance to finish it up in the waiting room at my son's eye doctor this week. Maybe we need a Ultimate Hang PIF thread? I've already got several friends who need to be "converted" so I'll be passing my copy off to them.

    All the time!

    I pretty much always have a book on me when I am on the trail. It's relaxing after a long hike to sit in my hammock and read.

    I read Huxley's "Doors of Perception" almost all the way through in my hammock. '-)

    If I'm going to fall asleep while reading, might as well do it in the hammock. Not Dejoha's book specifically. Just any book I read. At least when I'm in the hammock I don't wake up with my legs asleep like when I'm at my desk.

    Ya, I was not talking about reading a book in a hammock I was talking about reading "The Ultimate Hang" in a hammock.

    I just thought it was ironic, and fitting.

    I am not a reader by any means, unless it consists of my subscriptions to Rod & Custom and Rat Rod Magazine, or what has been posted in the forums I am on. But typically I don't read...nor would I ever take a book with me on a hike...too heavy

    any way, carry on.....

    Oh and speaking of PIF...I am sending this out to my dad along with a new WB traveler 1.1 DL, and my used Shamu IX UQ. He fell in love with my hammock 8 month ago, and has been buggin me to help him find "one" ever since. He has been going through some real hard times for the past couple of months, so I figured this would help cheer him up.
    I miss my 4.8Lb base weight as a ground dweller...But I sure DON'T MISS the ground.
