Okay, I am not a hammock user ....yet. But I plan on it.
I am a CubMster of a pack in Hampstead, NC. We go camping at least 3 times a year as a pack, and 3 or 4 more times at district or council event's.
My son is at the highest rank of Cub Scouts, soon to cross into Boy Scouts, so as time will go by, we will camp more often.
Now, my issue is not that I hate using a tent, but hate dropping to my hands and kness to crawl in or out of the tent, having to lay down on the ground and get up again, and having to lay on my back to get dressed .
I carry a huge tote for all the tent, ground tarp, rainfly, bags, etc...
I want to be able to carry it all on a pack.
Did I mention my back? Thinking a nice comfortable hammock that is about waist high will keep me from being stiff and sore after two nights of camping.
So, within a month or two, I plan on buying a hammock.
While I do not want the cheapest low quality hammock out there...I also know that there is a learning curve and that buying the super ultra elite expert hammock will do me no better.
Also, I am of the midset that you don't need a decked out, chromed out hummer when a plain jeep will do just as good.
WEll, here I am!
