89WranglerIn real time, it took about two hours to get them all hanging. We had a lot of fun figuring it out! Thanks for looking! Looks awesome!!! so did they use rope ladders or did they just climb up the hammocks? IsailSunfish 89Wrangler They just climbed up the Hammocks! When they got high enough, they clipped their harnesses in to ensure they couldn't fall too far. IsailSunfish christ on a trike that is awesome 89Wrangler Haha thanks! We had a great time! meem1029 How strong are the straps you were using to sudden stresses straight down like would have happened had they fallen? I could easily see them being perfectly capable of holding the hammock but fail if you fall. (Assuming you just clipped into the hammocks. There could have been ways of clipping directly to the trees that I missed.) 89Wrangler I wasn't doing it, but as far as I know, they were clipping into two hammocks at a time. Luckily, we didn't need to test their strength! OverlyButtered The gap at the top shrinks at least a foot If not more. Nope! Haha sabr0sa Going to need a huge rain fly! BicycleOfLifeENO Double deluxe/ pro fly/ ENO Bug I feel like this should be in the walking dead as a way some group has been surviving out in the woods. RigobertaMenchu That guy on the left is like "Mmmmm, You guys go ahead, I'm here" Raphaelion Kansas? 89Wrangler Yep! We were on K-State's campus. frermanisawesome I thought it looked dangerous BEFORE I watched the video!! i'm getting old... brianle37 Im relatively new to hanging.... are these hung a bit too tight? 89Wrangler They were pretty comfortable to relax in, but probably wouldn't be optimal to sleep in. Ultimately, it's up to you though. There's not really a wrong way to do it. LuizCentenaro The perfect hang ;) justintime516 I feel bad for whoever was still on the left when you guys were done. still, epic. LuizCentenaro You guys are freakin' awesome! Alex you are the man!
