webbing, and are often useful in the car too. On my bike I generally
have tree climbing or rock climbing gear, so that's also not an issue.

because it's useful and quite light. Not ultra-light backpacking

times before. And you, Bill, Rick and the rest are right there's not
enough scientific data and we need studies. So they'll want to study
it. I'm guessing they'll ban hammocks while they do that.
Prohibition is the default option in government decisionmaking, after

Service) can take years.
I'm hoping that if we approach these people with something workable
we can avoid the prohibition part in the interim.
