Came here thanks to "Skypainter" ( at LL Bean, Burlington. )
I'm a longtime Scout and Scouter, and have spent all of those years sleeping on the ground. I'd say Chaaaz has got me about 80% convinced to give a hammock a try.
I just had a backpacking trip go south with a way-to-heavy tent, so I'm eyeing this with some hope.
Hope to be a regular on these forums, should I get my act together.
