I am a pediatric pharmacist and I live in St. Petersburg Florida. Two weeks ago it was a beautiful day here and I decided to take a nap in my Ikea hammock. It was relaxing. Then I started wondering what it would be like to really sleep all the time in a hammock. Well, for the last 2 weeks I have been learning all I can about hammocks. I an 67 years young and love to camp. Unfortunately my partner of 36 years hates to camp and thinks that I am crazy to want to sleep in a hammock. Since he will not give up the bed I have to find another outlet for my curiosity. SO after I buy my Brazilian I will string it up in my sewing machine repair/sewing studio space in a converted stand alone 2 car garage. Then try it out for various periods of napping/sleeping. Even the folks I work with think I have lost my mind.:eek:
Re: Newbie Here
Welcome from SC! You're in good company here as the majority of us, also, have family and friends who think we are crazy in our love of hammocks and camping. It's OK, you have found "your people" now. :-) There are a few fortunate ones who have partners who share their passion.
Go to a group hang and you'll learn lots and meet a whole bunch of other folks who understand your new found interest. :-)
Welcome from Virginia! You're going to love hammock napping. It's the favorite part of my day (when I actually have the chance).
Just remember: It's okay to be nuts so long as you don't let it drive you crazy.
Welcome from Gainesville!
Beware! You are about to open a can of worms. :)
But after you spend a night in a dialed in hammock setup, you'll think groundsleepers are crazy.
