shares with us his experiences in designing tents as portable tree houses. With a love of trees in his youth that was inspired by the Ewok Villages of Star Wars VI and a desire for preservation, Alex began a career architecting treehouses. Since then, he’s moved on to portable tree houses – tents under tension, straddling three trees. We talk about the solution and how it might bring the social benefits of tenting to the physical benefits of hanging, along with the obvious value of cupholders in a tent. Finally, Alex shares his concerns about the environment, and how his company is actively trying to plant new forests to offset the destruction of trees around the world.

Mark and Jonathan also discuss the challenges of getting a comfortable, flat lay in a traditional hammock, and have some tips on how to hang at an angle, and how to get that perfect pitch, even for a side sleeper.
