    My one regret is that I was unable to get a video of them coming out of their tents.

    We really shouldn't look down on these folks. I know it's hard from our perspective.

    Glad to see they came out anyway.

    LOL You just made my week with this! I am sitting at my desk at work laughing my head off and getting the strangest looks from people who do not understand the finer points of hammocking
