    Appalachian Trails

    There is a website called Appalachian Trails and they have a new article about changing from tents to hammocks. Hammock forums is mentioned. Also a few of the vendors are mentioned but they left out a lot of vendors but I guess they couldn't list all the vendors. If you get a chance check out the article.

    I'm assuming you mean Appalachian "Trials", not trails. Easy to confuse.

    Here is a link to the article: http://appalachiantrials.com/transit...-to-a-hammock/

    Cool article. As a newly transformed "hanger" it is good to hear the Pros and cons. And my thinking is the pros outweigh the cons, but the cons need considering in my newness to hammocks.
    Overall very enjoyable.

    There appears to be a recent rise in the number of positive, accurate articles trying to teach a broader audience about hammock camping.

    After sleeping in a hammock, a bed just sounds barbaric.
