    My wife got me a hammock for a wedding anniversary gift so I tried it out at my camp.I laid in it for a few minutes,seemed fine.So I made a video of me hooking it up,and trying it out so she could see it,and I could do a short review.During the video when I once more laid on it,seconds later the rigging went,and I went flying to the ground.Luckily there were no objects below that could've caused injury.The rigging came apart at the carabiner.I used my Grand Trunk brand hammock tying kit,not the hammock's system.Nevertheless,my wife and I had a good laugh when I explained what happened,and showed her the video I'm about to show you.LOLMaybe some wouldn't show the video,but I don't take myself too seriously anymore.

    Ye Ha! Glad you didn’t bust your back.

    So, did something break or just come untied?

    Ouch! That hurt to watch! I'm glad it was more painful for me that you. Great reminder to practice my knots! Thanks!
