Hammocks Saving Lives

Just over a week ago, a group of brave hikers set out to rescue an injured German Shepherd deserted by its owners on the top of Mt. Bierstadt, CO. The dog, Missy, was discovered by a couple who, after trying unsuccessfully to rescue her themselves, took pictures and posted them on a hiking Web site – – urging people to help. Immediately the climbing community sprang into action, gathering up an eight man search party to bring the dog down to safety.

This all happened just over a week ago, so you may have already read the details. But, did you know a hammock was used in the rescue?

And this isn’t the first time we’ve heard this either! From using ENOs as a barrier to stop runaway golf carts, to using them as a blanket to protect from hypothermia, there appears to be many uses to this relaxing accessory!

Do you have a story to tell? We’d love to hear it! Email them to, or post them on our Facebook! We may even feature it in our newsletter

Keep staying relaxed and saving lives y’all!
