    First Indoor Hang

    I had my first indoor hang last night at a Cub Scout Lock-In. Me and one of my volunteers hung from the support I beams in the church.

    The event went great. The hang time was awesome, but I got colder than I expected and had to dig out the Coleman 40 bag and climb in. I also learned that I don't like a sag angle of about 60. The next time I'll remember to take a much closer look at that when I hang the Atlas Straps.

    Pics? I don't know why but I picture you hanging way off the ground. Anyway, sounds like a good way to get a hang in while helping out the scouts.

    Sounds like a ton of fun! Hanging out with the scouts is always a lot of fun - and is a good way to share some hammock-awesomeness with others.

    Yeah, we hung over a pair of pool tables. I had to use a chair to get into the hammock.

    What can I say Paul, I love my job. I work for a great organization that does a lot of great things for kids. I know, I grew up in the program.
