    Look at the bright side; you would have your choice of trees!

    When is your tour up and do you know where you'll be next?
    Tried to last year. Yeah I have choice of trees, the only downside to the coconut palm are the 5lb seeds these things drop. Just cause their green don't mean they won't fall... My tour isn't up for Atleast 2 more years here and no clue to where I'm headed next, I do have ideas on where I would like to go though.

    There's plenty of room in the ocean for more than one fish...we're the making of a school. The only question is once theirs enough "fish", will we call ourself a school of hammockers or will it remain a flock of hangers?

    The hammock you choose for your first will always be dear to your heart as your gateway hammock, but you will probably get more just like everyone else does. What I would suggest is to get a tablecloth from tableclothsfactory and whip it with some paracord or whatever. Buy or make a whoopie sling kit from whoopie slings or BIAS or papa smurf, and get out there.

    Flying fish are some of the most graceful yet awkward fish I have ever laid eyes upon. Hence the picture next to my name. It's awkward to see one fly but they do it gracefully especially for fish.

    Welcome to this vast floating ocean fish, maybe yours will unfreeze soon. If you ever need a warm vacation and want to risk a coconut as an alarm clock, let me know and we'll work it out.

    Wonder if I could "Space A" a flight out there and back? That would be awesome.
    Pretty ironic that you are active duty and use a BIAS WWM as I'm retired USN, slept in my WWM and spent this past weekend with the BIAS guys (Brian and Shane) at a hang in Arkansas. :-)

    Well stated, despite the lack of sleep! As for my first pick for a hammock, I've got an order in with Brandon at Warbonnet for a Blackbird 1.1 dbl and a Mamajamba tarp to match. Words can't explain how anxious I am for the last 4-5 feet of snow to melt away so I can get out there. My wife of course... she thinks I've lost my mind. Maybe I have. Already planning a solo hike and hang for late April, if I've received my equipment by then.

    School of hangers. I think flock still works best.

    Cheers!

    Hafa Adai! Your house looks like my house when I was as Andersen AFB in the 80s. Just don't let a cocoanut drop on you! Best to hang after a typhoon when all the cocoanuts have blown off

    Qwik and Lucky,

    If you guys do wind up trying to space a it out here let me know. I have a certain time frame that this will work for. Being on sea duty (yep navy) Im sure you guys can understand I have operational commitments to plan around.

    Hikingboots,

    Its the same buildings as they were in the 80s. Not even supertyphoons can knock these things down...unfortunately...They do keep them up and modern with the renovations inside, but the outside I think are a sight for sore eyes.

    I can also fly Space A. Does anyone know from which bases most military flights to Guam originate? This could be fun....I've done crazier things.

    Hawaii Alaska and Japan are where I have seen the most come and go from.
