    Low of -2 on Friday boys.

    I'll bring a spare 8x10 tarp that can be used as side protection under a bigger tarp.

    Last check in; Boats (2 tandems) on the car and bag packed.

    Extra paddles for Chenvre, Kasuko, Bubba plus I brought one more.

    Extra life jacket for Chenvre.

    Threw a tarp in the car just incase ....

    7:00 at Tims Ravenscliffe Rd and Hwy 11 Huntsville.

    If anyone forgets/needs anything I will check here tomorrow before I leave.

    See you all soon

    Cheers.

    When you discard arrogance, complexity, and a few other things that get in the way, sooner or later you will discover that simple, childlike, and mysterious secret known to those of the Uncarved Block: Life is Fun.

    We've come down to the wire. In a few hours twelve hardy Hammock Forum members will meet, some for the first time, share a coffee and head out on what's shaping up to be a fantastic weekend of canoeing, fishing and generally living the hammockers life.

    This fall's Coureurs de Bois

    • Cedar328* & Jayson

    May our canoes bring us all home safely...

    Hey all so just about to be a sore winner,

    So it came up during the trip someone asked what the highest force you could exert on your hammock was and dant8ro was quick to respond "Your body weight" to which I responded in all seriousness "Infinity".

    Many of you responded with a soft laugh which confused me and I tried to defend myself stating that you can not draw anything perfectly horizontal because it would require infinite force, but dant8ro assured me that he had 4 years of University math and that I must be mistaken. Chard also asked how a bridge worked if it couldn't be horizontal. I tried explaining how the forces followed a factor of the tangent curve of the hanging angle of the hammock but I was greeted with blank stares that left me just quietly admitting defeat but also planning my rise back to power.

    So my friends here is the math behind the physics of hanging a hammock
    http://forums.randi.org/showthread.php?t=211653

    If you don't want to read it all I don't blame you but I shall quote the interesting part

    When alpha [the hang angle] is 0, the hammock is pulled so strongly horizontally that it does not sag at all. This is physically impossible, it would require an infinite frorce
    So dant8ro ... which University did you take all this math from? I've only taken 2 years of math at my University.

    Also Chard with regards to your bridge statement. The trick is the suspension that you see coming from the large pillars in the middle that are hanging at an angle. This would be equivalent from trying to hang a board across a chasm without any sag or supports.
    I like metric, I use metric, for those of you who don't ... you should, for those of you who won't ... here.

    I had a similar conversation with an engineer friend of mine at the office and I can't fault the math. I guess at the end of the day, no one can pull their hammock suspension so tight that it hangs at a 0 degree angle. Until such a time as somone is able to exert an infinite horizontal force resulting in a zero vertical force, then there will always be a sag in the suspension, and to your point in any bridge. What we have to come away with is sag is good, well at least in hammocks.

    My economics math wasn't made for these calcs and that was 25 years ago to boot.

    Consider yourself redeemed Sir Kasuko. Just remember with great power comes great responsibility/

    Touche, and so I shall bow to the math.

    The approach is valid, but as you said technically impossible. The line will bend.
