Last weekend (11/18 & 19/06) I & 17 of my fellow cast members were invited to the Carolina Ren. Fest. in Charlotte NC. 700+ miles from my home.
We were allowed to camp for free, so I took my hammock. BUT, as it were chilly, my son & 2 of our friends were going to sleep in our 6 person tent. So, I decided to not be anti social & slept on the ground.
All I can say is:
THAT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN AGAIN!
We had heat, & I had 2 pads under me. I stayed warm, but I didn't sleep nearly as well as when I hang. The next morning I spent about 10 minutes finding a place to hang for when we go back next year I am so ready.
Summary: I am now convinced that sleeping on the ground SUCKS! Sleeping in a hammock RULES! Nuff said.
