Hawk-eye, this is definately off topic but your signature is SO AWESOME! ("A democracy is two wolves and a small lamb voting on what to have for dinner. Freedom under a constitutional republic is a well armed lamb contesting the vote"). Thank you!
WARNING: Will discuss Rhurbarb Strawberry Pie and Livermush at random.

"A womans place is on the trail"
Thanks to the thread in you sig I finally was able to imitate this idea (to a lesser degree). Thanks Refreshing!
And nice video. Hopefully we will see more canopy camping vids on youtube in the future.
JKDmoo, AWESOME STUFF! I am so glad to help!
That was pretty good. I have some ascenders at work. I will try on a small tree.
Ha, that's awesome.
You need to put a disclaimer on the video itself though - it may be tongue-in-cheek, but it has the appearance of a training video and it listed as a tutorial, and thus leaves you liable if anyone followed it and fell.
I wouldn't trust that harness in a horizontal position if I were as skinny as you. It already looks somewhat low (ie on your hips more than your waist) and I don't know how well it would hold you in the event of an inversion (which is a distinct possibility if your hammock ever failed). I can see how slack the waist belt is at 4:41. Actually when you are laying in the hammock at the end of the video, an inversion would be almost certain because the anchors is towards your feet. You might consider a chest harness that you can't fall out of. I'm also not a fan of your base anchor - it doesn't pass muster for me.
Safety issues aside though, love it.
Love it. Reminds me of those 3rd grade science films/slideshows.
