My hammock.

So...you just string it up anywhere, even while travelling?? Hostel owners don't mind?

Yes it is. And one just like it can be yours for a one-time fee of 80 dollars plus shipping and handling!

Is 50 quid good or bad for a hammock?! I'm not very clued up on hammocks and their prices!

I usually spend my weekends doing stuff with mates and the girlfriend. Friday night is spent at my footy team's pub after training. I play footy on Saturday, then either go to the pub with the team or go have a few (or a lot) of drinks at another pub with some mates. Sunday i'll either spend the day in bed hungover watching TV or i'll be out riding my dirtbike with mates. There's usually some time spent in the shed working on my bike in there somewhere as well, and more often than not a bit of hunting on Sunday. Then there's the random horse riding, camping, fishing weekends that come up sometimes.

Very nice sales pitch Jake!
My hammock is a bit more colourful and I'll have to take some pics when I string it up and post on here. Something tells me that the picture will include a beer and a big smile too!

"The wife"...? Does your Aussie boyfriend know about your spouse, Steph?

That's a great price - where at? Does it come with mounting hardware, or do you just tied it around something?

PM me back or whatever..

I'll bring the wine (probably a pinot grigio rose), and whats more i'll bring the herbal remedies, a classic movie (something with kurt russel in it......maybe ''Escape from LA'' or ''the thing''), some ambient music like Mr Scruff, and of course what night would be complete without an inflatable sex doll......


Sooo naughty!

Since I have little time to actually sit down, reading is always a nice thing...though I've been known to do my fair share of heel clicks---another good time= theatre.

Depends on the Hammock. I have seen some very nice very big ones going for around $200 or so. American rope hammocks though are available for like $20 most places. All depends on what your looking for.

Sad thing is, it's many of the above.. and then some...

I like to spend time with friends and family. I work on my car/house/garden/stuff. I veg in front of the TV/Computer. I go hiking. I dream of my next big trip. I take short roadtrips. I take long roadtrips. I cook... and the list goes on...

I need to be able to pick more than one choice...

Yep. Same here. Cleaning is also relaxing for me... and so is taking a nice long bath and doing a mini beauty routine.

I sit on my back porch, put my Ipod on shuffle, look at the tress, watch my dog chase the Ibis, and drink a few cold ones.

I also play this really addicting video game called Norrath, Return to Arms.
