One of the things I REALLY like about my hammock is how I actually have a CHAIR to sit in while out in the wilderness.
I'm an ultralight nut but the slight extra weight is worth not having back pains.
Anyway. The one issue I have is cooking. It would be NICE to cook without having pains in my lower back. Sitting in a hammock would rock but the synthetic material would melt if heat got to it.
I also need to mention that I use a wood stove... so the flames are uncontrollable. Any thoughts?
