    Welcome from Florida!!
    Yes, I do that ALL the time. I seen trees that seem to be planted on purpose, just waiting to be utilized (which goes to show that God must be a hammock person). I've even spaced out a couple of pencils on the desk at work, stretched out a rubber band in between them and made a paper hammock....I need to stop before the boss sees this.

    All the time. My wife thinks I've lost my mind.

    LOL YES! My wife thinks it's stupid. Even driving along the highway I'll see some random patches of trees and think it would be a nice spot. "That looks to be about 14 feet"

    Start questioning your sanity when you actually stop and measure to see if its the perfect distance

    could I hang there?

    On the flip side, I have put my Hammock in the car and am actually looking for a pair of trees so I can put it up for the first time!
    Next thought is some support pillars at work in the office.

    Re: could I hang there?

    Yeah... Or you drive along and see a big patch of smaller trees and I will usually mutter something like "hammock hotel" or "you could hang an army over there"

    My wife doesn't even respond any more, not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing...

    Not only trees but in the city I also look at light posts, telephone poles, railings, pillars, fence posts etc. It's actually good practice for when you do go out into the woods. Judging hanging spots from afar is a skill worth honing IMO.

    I have been in 4 new stations at work in past year, the FIRST thing I did (after locating the privy of course) is try to figure out a place to hang "just in case".

    And, YES I look at every group of trees with the thought "could I hang there?"
    When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.
    PAIN is INEVITABLE. MISERY is OPTIONAL.
