I just started getting into hammocks this year. Actually havent had my first hang yet, going in a couple weeks out to CO. My brother just got into as well, so I kind of went off his idea and I've always had a hard time sleeping on the ground backpacking. Plus the set up/tear down/packing seems at least easier, maybe even lighter.

Actually if anyone has ever been to Lost Creek/Goose Creek Trail in CO let me know any reviews/tips/etc...i'll be there in a few weeks!
