    on embedding a YT video...

    each one has a unique identifier in the URL, a sequence of characters that follow the three characters ?v= (which is a flag to the YT server that you want to view ('v') the video associated with the identifier). In your case that
    identifier is _BWzSPo4Qig .

    To embed in an HF posting:
    1. Make an empty line in the posting
    2. Make a line beneath this

    [YT]identifier[/YT]

    3. Follow this with another empty line

    where you use the word youtube in place of the characters YT (if I used 'youtube' directly in place of YT the HF server would think I'm trying to embed a video...)

    Unless of course you wrap it in noparse tags. Like so -

    Nice review Backpackhiker,

    Thanks for sharing. I have a question that you may have covered but perhaps I missed... That tarp looks like it just barely covers the hammock. Is it really as small as it looks? How do you think this would fare in the rain? It looks almost the size of an ENO (FastFly, I think...). What are your thoughts?

    Cheers,
    Doc

    Tarp Size

    Hello,

    The tarp is similar in size to the one used by Hennessy. It does just cover the hammock but keep in mind that is a double hammock and is longer than your average single hammock.

    As far as how it would do in the rain. I think it would probably be fine in a straight rain but if there was also high winds you might get a little wet maybe

    Good review, was shipping expensive to Canada for this?
