    My golden rule is "Never hang a hammock higher than you're willing to fall." You must bounce better than I do! Love the video. Be careful out there. ;-)

    Nice! I have been waiting to see some video of your high hanging... That looks like a worthwhile journey! I will let ya borrow a little HD camera for a couple weeks if you want to get some better footage...

    I'm wondering how you crawled into your hammock without flipping out the other side?

    Good move on the safety aspect. I saw that you were tied in while laying in the hammock. Looking at splattered heads is no fun.

    The wind in the pines,
    The mountains give these and more...
    Peace of mind.

    Standing up clapping and a to you good sir.

    I'm not ashamed to say that I have learned from being hit by the Earth to stay close to it. Doesn't hurt as much that way. If I'm sitting in my hammy and my feet don't touch squarely, then I'm too high

    That being said, I like the precautions you took. Climbers know how to hang
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you

    How do you incorporate a tarp?

    I usually don't in the winter . A tarp is just extra weight since snow is easily wiped off. (however I use a tarp sock on really windy nights)

    In the summer I use a ridgeline and tie the tarp down/around/underneath the hammock and tie it to the opposite side of the hammock. Or I just tie it to nearby branches.
