    Thanks, and excellent point! Although, come to think of it, 4x4's might cost more but would certainly be safer.

    You, sir, are Super Ultra-Safe!

    High-speed is cool, but there ain't no school quite like the "Old School"

    Double it. 36 wheeler would be safer.

    Actually, I sew belt loops on the inside of my waistband as well. 2 belts and suspenders under the t-shirt--thinking about adding an additional pair of suspenders over the t-shirt... no such thing as redundancy when it comes to pants safety (learned that in my high school gym class).

    My forum name is Fish<><; I'm in the navy; and I hate sleeping on the ground. If I didn't need ground to walk on or measure resistance to, I think I could happily give it up.

    This reminds me of a book I got from the local library entitled "Rash" about a future America obsessed with safety. Funny book.

    Lol! I feel better about using my winch cable once in a while. Makes adjusting your hammock super easy.
    Carpe noctem!!
