    Shug (Sean Emery) = father of hammocking!! Well worth watching his series. Convinced me to try hammocking and to buy more kit from the U.S.

    He's a harmless guy, no transport, works long hours and that's his, 'get-away-and-chill time, so that's how he enjoys life.
    Yep, the vids are too long, but you can see he loves what he is doing...no booze either...
    I cringe in pain when I see what he carries....obviously still in a time warp re gear.....but......£'sssss
