    Red face The Most Ridiculous Tree Climbing and Hammocking Tutorial EVER!

    As I hiked into the forest with my new HD camera (I LOVE MY WIFE ) I was excited to fulfill the requests to construct a tutorial of a tree-camping trip that starts at the base and finishes with my hammock on the tree summit. BUT! My ideas were overtaken by my silly creativity. The further I hiked, the sillier my ideas became. And let me warn you, the final result is SUPER SILLY.

    I hope you guys enjoyed the video. The tree was an absolute MONSTER! I had so much fun making this video that I vowed not to waste my time pretending to be serious in any of my future videos. Ask me questions or tell me what you thought!

    .

    DO NOT follow this tutorial until you have had face to face training from a professional tree climber. This video represents only one technique for tree ascension. Some of the knots and equipment used in this video do not meet OSHA standards. Neither HammockForums nor I are responsible for any injuries or death that occur from watching this video.

    That was great! Static or dynamic rope? All I need is an ascender, and permission from the wife :-)
