    If you could lock 6 in a room....

    Which 6 of the greatest hammocking minds would you lock in a room and expect something remarkable to emerge.
    Here's my list (in no particular order):

    Professor Hammock
    Hangnout
    Risk
    MacIntyre
    Dutch.
    WarbonnetDude

    I could easily add more but the limit is 6!

    After Mule made that pleated Bridge hammock, I think I'd have to find a way to fit him into the mix. Who I would remove to make room is a much tougher question.

    I would add Sgt. Rock to it. I really like the stuff he does to go lighter and see how far he can take it.

    I'd try and sneak in, not because I could contribute anything worthwhile, but just imagine what you'd learn!!

    I see a flaw in your scheme if there are hammocks in the room.
    They would all just go to sleep and nothing would emerge except the sound of sawing logs!

    Only 6? Well in no particular order:
    • Sgt Rock - For making things lighter
    • Dutch - For the hardware
    • Stormcrow - For the downy goodness
    • HangnOut - For the sideways thinking
    • WV - For thinking from the opposite side of Hangnout
    • Grizz - For doing all the math to make sure it will work


    Then give the result to Shug to make a video, and to Risk to take it all a step further.

    Just Jeff contributed a lot. And I think Dutch and Opie improved our suspension systems immensely.

    Exactly, who to kick off? That 1st list is a good list, I would want to add 1:Shug but in place of who? And how about 2:Ed Speer and inventor of the SPE and Snugfit 3:Youngblood?

    And how about some who don't post much, but I think are major sources of knowledge from experience? Like 4:Angrysparrow, and how about the man who stayed toasty, camped beside Shug, on a minus 27 BACKPACK trip years ago, in an augmented HHSS, 5: kwpapke? Anyone who could pull that off has to have some knowhow!

    How about number 6: 4dog? So that's six, but who should they replace? And the limit is 6, but I'm thinking of another one known for eating humans at a high Sierra Mountain pass, but I can't put him in because I'm over six. But how can I leave out a guy who got through a very snowy zero or bit below with no tarp testing the new WB Climashield Yeti?
    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.
    Romans 8:18,21-22
