Not Boring at all!
Love love loved it Brucie!
Fish-eye helmet mount totally cool!
Excellent silhouette sky shot by the way.
Blackbird Hobo novelty made me feel at home!
When you put your hand near the ground to show the prussik and the tent peg do you worry about a Brown giving you a dose of serpent cocktail?
Population of Brisbane?
THANKS for a wonderful peep into your world Brucie! Thoroughly enjoyed. You're def. a loveable goof and the vid made me want for a spot of tea
I always enjoy your videos. Your witty comments at the screen's bottom are my brand of humor.

I donít mind the fish-eye lenses, it has some + and Ėes.
Snakes usually get out of the way, if they know youíre shooting a movie. Well, not really, but I was fairly safe where I was. Well, when I say fairly safe, I mean kind of safeish in an iffy kind of way. The truth is, my hand was near the ground, but the rest of me was up on a chair. ;0) Really, I think snakes here are like bears there... If you and me just arrived in a car at the start of a walk and you said, ďOh and watch out for bears.Ē Iíd lock the door and keep saying over and over again, take me home, take me home, take me home, take me home!!! Youíd have to call me a big cry baby, cuz Iíd be crying a lot! lol We hardly ever see snakes, just like you hardly ever see bears. I WILL film one if I ever do see one.
There are A LOT of people here in Brissy, just over 2 million! I included some numbers for you below. You are welcome for the peep, MedicineMan! Oh and we donít drink tea here, thatís an England thing. We drink beer and lots of it, The people who live here are the biggest beer drinkers in the world (not me, I donít drink). Well, that's not right, maybe we used to be. I just looked it up on Google and now weíre rank 5 in the world, America is rank 13. We canít beat you at the Olympics, but weíre better at drinking beer Ė thatís something to be proud of! lol
Bye for now!

The thinking behind the comments at the bottom of the screen is along the same line as the two old men in the Muppet Show, Statler and Waldorf. They sit up in a booth and heckle the Muppets doing the show. The comments are from some nameless, faceless person who watches the videos and is somehow able to add the heckling comments, maybe after it is uploaded by Bruciehi5. Itís just meant to be a bit of fun. This time, however, the nameless, faceless person went one step further and switched Bruciehi5ís camera off and then took his Microphone off him Ė how rude! Statler and Waldorf never did that to the Muppets. lol Thanks for watching and commenting STinGa!
Very cool... Enjoyed. Thanks for posting.
Just for anyone interested, GoPro have fixed the problem with the screen not working. It worked for me, so, if you have, or get the same problem, there is a fix. I'm still not very happy with the camera, but this is a step in the right direction.

Hi there Hangin Burrito,
Whenever I see your name posted around the forums, I instantly think of the hammock foot rest. You were the first person I saw with one. I know Iíve said it before, but itís such an important part of my hammock hanging experience that I want to say it again... Thanks for the foot rest idea, itís extra so good!
I just got back from a very relaxing, almost problem free overnighter. Thatís way Iíve taken so long to reply to your post - I havenít been here. And no, I didn't get lost, well, I did, but I didn't now I was lost, so, technically I wasnít.
Anyway, I like the public hanging idea, it was sort of a double public hanging. I could have called it, The Double Public Hanging Of Bruciehi5. People would have PAID to see Bruciehi5 hang twice. lol They may have been a little disappointed when they found out it was a hammock hanging and not Bruciehi5 being strung up. Thereíd be a few people asking for a refund!
Sounds like a good way to start the day, a cuppa and a hammock forum video or two! You are always welcome for the sharing, Hangin Burrito!
