First I want to say what an obsession Hammock Forums has become and I have yet to sleep in one! I have truly enjoyed the insight, ideas, reviews and of course the humorous videos by Shug, so thanks to all!
I have a question for you, and that is regarding hanging with kids. Specifically, I have a 6 y/o son, and an arsenal of tents, with plans on section hiking the AT together. After pouring over the site, I am considering utilizing a hammock. So...can a big dad, 250#'s and a 6 y/o sleep comfortably in a hammock, or are we better off utilizing two? At his age, I wanted him to feel secure, and create a positive experience for him. If this is not reasonable, does anyone have any experience hanging two hammocks side by side under one tarp? I think both my son and I would feel better, (or at least I would), being able to reach out and put my arm around my son or hold his hand if he was scared. I have made several attempts at doing a search on the site regarding this topic, but have yet to find anything. If this subject has been addressed, accept my apologies, I did not intend to be redundant.
I look forward to any and all suggestions!
