Not 100% sure how it all started , Following a canoe trip for 4 days and ground sleeping I knew i had to find something better. But just not quite sure where the idea to try a hammock came from. It was a definate comfort decision rather than weight.
We have an inflatable canoe and we did try and sleep in that one night rather than in a tent. We should have tied a rope to each end and slung it from two trees
Any way there is no going back now, Even my 8 year old son refused to ground sleep now
