    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.

    I was driving the other day,and kept seeing these perfect positioned trees to set up my
    hammock.....am I the only one who does this? What do you think?
    I find myself doing that all the time while driving down the road.
    I solemnly swear that I am up to no good...

    I do this too, and I have a theory that it is because it never seems to be as easy to find a good set of trees when camping as one would expect. The woods are filled with trees, and they are either too far away, too close together, widow-makers, too exposed to wind, too many sticker-bushes or other undergrowth, etc.... We've been conditioned to hunt for the perfect location

    UM, , , nobody said you weren't going crazy, just that we too do what you do.

    Just so you are clear: "crazy loves company!"





    BTW, I take an Xtra large in a wrap around jacket.
