    That style of hammocking never even crossed my mind! Thanks for pushing the envelope and showing us other ways to hang. I'd love to try it, but I think I'm better suited for being closer to the ground. Nice pics!

    I won't be trying this, since I sleepwalk on occasion, but looks like great fun!

    I do have a cheap DIY tarp sock from my first hammock but other than shielding me from the wind tarps don't do much in the winter. If it snows I just brush it off and enjoy the extra weight that I did not have to carry up the tree in my pack! Haha.

    However for the summer I have been planning on making a tarp/bugnet sock that just pulls over the hammock since it is so hard to rappel into the hammock when there is a tarp set up over it. It will be waterproof silnyl on the top and mesh on the bottom but I am too poor at this time to worry about it!

    Thank you, I was just offered an arborist job last month that I wanted SO BAD but reluctantly turned down so that I could finish Medic school. One of the hardest decisions I've made in life.

    My wife has wanted to get us a GoPro so that I could film the excursions but money is too tight. Video would make it way easier for me to show you guys a little bit of what it takes to climb, setup, hang, sleep, and eat in the tree canopy.

    Fantastic! And no spreader bars needed, but then you need the climbing equipment. And high above the Grizzly bears like Ed Speer used to do, but not out of reach of the tree climbing black bears.

    Pretty wild!
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    I can only assume you'll be harnessed in, if and when you sleep in it. It wouldn't be the first time ripstop nylon has catastrophically failed. Now THAT would be a video worth watching.

    I love the view of the hammock from directly above.

    Hahaha. I used to sleep with about 5 feet of slack in my line thinking I don't have much to worry about until I actually imagined sleeping and waking up while falling through the air! I now sleep with a taught line

    Now hang your dog with you up there and I will be impressed. Just kidding! That is ballsy. I don't mind height, I bow hunt, but I don't know if I trust not rolling out of the hammock to pee in the middle of the night and getting that falling feeling.
