    Blaze,

    I always enjoy your videos, the views, the monologues, the gear reviews.


    Sorry to hear about the job situation, things do have a way of working themselves out though.

    I'm really sorry to hear about your job. I hope things are secure in your sector real soon. Take care man.

    Thanks Fronkey.
    Though whether things will be secure again I doubt.
    Times are a changing.

    Well Hawk-eye. Here I thought the door had become a window. As it turns out it looks more like a gate.

    The red pouch on the ridgeline? also on your chest when riding?
    Hanging by the Zuiderzee-how cool is that!
    3 years before pension-happening over here too....sorry Blaze, you'll find the other door.
    Glad it was what you were looking for MedicineMan. One of the next videos will be with shots going through the city of Svendborg to the hang.
    With the Levin/McCain indefinite detention bill on the table, Kafka’s “The Trail” seems a walk in the park.
    The red pouch is for my Kodak Playsport ZX5.
    And life has to go on.

I came from teachers where you really had to do something wrong to get fired. Didn't have much money but had job security and more work than you could stand.
    Life has to go on, and it will. Luckily I have unemployment benefits for 2 years so I hope things will work out.

    Yeah, bailing out the banks and firing the workers. For what. Lets hope and pray it’s not for war.

That is what makes this forum and its members special, just like YOU.
    Thanks firecaptain53. Not being a pro with a camera, it warms my heart reading your words of appreciation. Yes the sharing in the hanging community is a true sign of wealth.

    What a downer to get that call whilst laying up in the hammock. Just not right to at least not have a face to face with you.

    Try to enjoy some time-off and let opportunity find you.
    My best to you.
    Sorry the security of sector Denmark has been compromised.

    That call to a hammock was a real anticlimax. Best as I was lying there chilling, suspended in mid air, I was free falling.
    That for sure was a wake up call.
    All secure under my skin.

    Sorry to hear about your job, what a bummer. But you've got the right attitude, its now an opportunity to do something else... or the same thing somewhere else. All the best to you.

    As for the video.... talk about being ensconced in downy goodness! I don't know how you could have been cold in all that.
    Good luck,

    I love the tea candle warming up water idea, too! The worst burn I ever got was from a candle setup like that, so I know it works!

    Video is awesome, per usual. I love tagging along on your adventures!!

    My very best to you moving forward. (BIG VIRTUAL HUG)
    Thanks creativeKayt.
    As for the job, now I am free.
    And where there is a will, there is a way.

    And the tea chandelier is awesome with the Snowpeak 300 Ti Cup.
    A BIG HUG,

    It's awful the way the gave you the news. They could have been better about that.
    Well, they only hinted on the phone and it was first next day at a meeting that we got the verdict.
    Best,

    Great video as always.

    Looking forward to what you come up with for the over the head cover.
    Love the sleeping bag with arms and pockets. My morning coffee will never get to cold
    now, thanks to your tealight idea.
    The JRB Hood is actually acting as the over the head cover in that setup with the PolarPod (my winter setup).
    Going with my HG quilts (summer setup), the setup will need some wind protection in the ends.
    Glad you liked the video.
    Blaze.

    Now FireInMyBones. As I see it, we have lost that annoying part of our life called work.
    Time to recalibrate.
    I am of in the direction called simple living.
    God willing, I will build two small cabins, 8 feet apart, each no more than 108 square foot, on a small piece of forrest land I have in town.
    Downsizing.

    Like your idea of heating water with it better.

    Take some time away, especially a physical activity in the fresh air and sunlight, is healthy not only for the body but for the mind and heart.

    Remember - “God will always provide for you.”

    Welcome Crazy Chester.
    And glad you found a hammock.
    I view it as my last line of defense against the world.
    And luckily my gear is top tuned.

    And I will leave that window wide open.

    I was sick during the last video I posted here at Hammock Forums and the people who commented on the video typed get well wishes, which really did make me feel better and get well sooner! I hope you can feel the positive energy coming from the Hammock Forum members posting their best “window opening” wishes! I hope that in one week from today we get another video from you with you in your hammock drinking coffee and saying, Hi guys, I got another job, all is secure again.”
    Thanks Bruciehi5 for all the well wishes, but couldn’t you give me more than a week before I have to go to work.
    Anyway I shall try to make the coffee scene part of future videos.

    On a personal level (under my skin) I have never been more secure than now, but lately world affairs has shown earths rulers with no clothes, like in "The Emperor's New Clothes."
    But that is for an other forum.

    The beautiful morning sky in your video reminds us of the beauty of each new day, possibly full of new opportunities. A sliver of light in a sky of grey.

    The only thing in life that we can all count on is it will always be changing.

    Our reaction and attitude towards the changes are what make the difference in how we get by. Every change gives us time to reflect, on what is most mportant to us, and set our course again to get there.

    You are very correct about new, and possibly better, opportunities being behind a new door. First we have to close the last one to find them.
    So true, so true TZBrown.

    Cold. You said cold. Man, me hanging (walking, sitting) around camp until freezing, not getting enough energy from the pre fabricated factory food, and then when thoroughly cold laying in my hammock with my feet high above my body.
    That recipe is my own and I will not recommend it to any body.
    And no amount of down could have saved me.
    Hot water in Nalgene bottles did the trick though.

    And Redoleary, you are right.
    A normal person would be cooking in that gear.
    And so do I normally.

    Blaze Away: by Holzmann, Kennedy


    We'll make a bonfire of our troubles and we'll watch them blaze away
    and when they've all gone up in smoke clouds,
    we'll never worry should they come another day
    and as the bonfire keeps on burning,
    happy days will be returning,
    while the band keeps playing
    we'll let our troubles blaze away

    Here we are, there's work to do,
    and don't let troubles trouble you.
    Bring them along and we'll burn them up,
    bring them along and we'll burn them up ha ha, ha hey

    Start and throw them right into the fire
    Watch the flames go higher and higher
    Blazing away, blazing away, oh, come along bring your worries round today.

    We'll make a bonfire of our troubles and we'll watch them blaze away
    and when they've all gone up in smoke clouds,
    we'll never worry should they come another day
    and as the bonfire keeps on burning,
    happy days will be returning,
    while the band is playing
    we'll let our troubles blaze away.
