    Hammock Forums Terms of Service

    In October 2006, HammockForums.net was created from whiteblaze.net to be the go-to source for hammock information. HF has always taken pride in its helpfulness, friendliness, innovation, and overall positive attitude. To continue in this tradition, we’ve created the following rules for participation here.

    Hammock Forums is a family friendly site. This means that our topics, language and treatment of each other are what you'd want your kids to see. We're not a bunch of prudes...we just think that the internet has enough places where that behavior is tolerated, and this particular site shouldn't be one of them. This is a great community where the norm is to support others in their ideas and projects, and not assume offense where none is intended...and therefore not to flame, call names, or create friction in our threads. Respectful disagreement is ok; disrespectful comments are not.

    Please participate in accordance with these guidelines, and PM the mods with any questions.

    Just a friendly reminder of HF's Terms of Service re: discussing religion and politics on this forum. It's not allowed.

    I thought a reminder would help us stay focused. Applying the TOS to the holidays, it's ok to wish folks Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Solstice, Kwanzaa or whatever...but discussions about the religious aspects of the holidays will be removed. We're here to discuss hammocks, so if you have strong feelings about religion and the holidays, please find another forum to discuss them.

    Looked like a reasonable article to me? I guess I'm missing the tripe and fascism. The author did some research and related a good experience. If you

    11-foot hammock

    I might offer an 11' by 72" wide from 2toutdoors.com for borrow. I can ship it to you in a small flat rate box. You can try it out and send it back

    I think that's a good call. My wife made the same comment as we were leaving the valley, but I'm not sure I'll be able to sneak back out in October.

    If you're backpacking by yourself, what do you do once you're done for the day?

    Most of my days are spent thinking, solving, hurrying, deciding, doing, fixing, responding, planning, organizing, etc. Both the hike and the end of a

    Actually, not a terrible article, for a short lifestyle article. Mentions tree straps, insulation, diagonal lay (very briefly) and some benefits. Curious
