Ohm for the night!


One thing about having more hammocks around is that the usable spots tend to get taken. Being a GA club most of the trees have been felled to keep the pitch clear. The goal posts were taken by Rob and I released my spot between the basketball post and the lamp post to Brendan.

I thought I’d have a go at hanging between the power pole and support wires. Ohm for the night, you’ve got to love that one! It was tricky as the wire flexed quite a bit, so even a very tight fly sagged when I got in. I was surprised at how easily I could make the power cables whip around, so I didn’t move around any more than I had to.

It was comfortable as ever though and I still love it. I could hear the hum of the transformers but it wasn’t intrusive. Next up is to try hanging across the corners of a serious transmission pylon. Talk about electric dreams!

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
