Posting this here as the intent is to show folks different ways to set up a hammock, and the variety of hammocks out there.

It's a relaxed backpacking trip in the Sam Houston National Forest nearer to Conroe/Huntsville than Austin. The thread is here.

Loved that last set up... Very inventive. My wife loved the colours of a lot of those hammocks. And I didn't feel right using my Snap-On tools red Hennessy rain fly on my Expedition. Think I will break it back out and use it. Great video as always Sarge. (By the way, we are new to hammock camping and are doing just as you suggested. There s a group hang here in SoCal in the spring and we plan to be right in the thick of it.)
Hennessy Expedition, Yukon Outfitters & Wilcor Mosquito Hammocks .... Plus, Equip Double. (Yep, a cheap Wally World but I like the thing for hanging on the patio.)

Sarge thanks for dropping by and letting me showoff my hammocks, My wife was glad you edited out her taking a nap. We really enjoyed the Texas Hang, Mighty Nice Folks I might add.
