    Talking The view was something else!

    This weekend I participated in a 24 hour Volleyball tournament in Montreal. Though we all bring camping gear to the event to take a nap here and there I decided to bring my hammock in case I could hang somewhere.

    When everybody was inside on the ground I went outside and right between two trees found a great spot right in the middle of the Olympic park.



    I only slept 4 and a half hours because I had another game to attend but it was something I've been wanting to do for a while.

    It's a real thrill to hang where you aren't supposed to.

    Before I went to sleep I saw what looked like a security car pass by. Didn't even see me hanging!

    Considering it was 2C (35F) that night it would have been one heck of an odd sight! Maybe I should consider my hammock this summer during other tournaments!

    Great view for sure! Stealth camping is becoming a fast hobby of mine!
