    Thanks for the replies.

    I hang low too. My bum is about 15cm off the floor to aid my old cat getting in and out. I have a small box for her to use as a step which I've been putting my things on....
  3. Indoor hangers: what's your "hammockside table"?

    I just switched the rooms around in my apartment. The old hammock location had me next to a wall with a little shelf that was great for a lamp, book, glasses and my phone. The new location is next to...

    Got rid of my bed yesterday.

    As part of cleaning up after being burgled I'm ruthlessly getting rid of things I don't need anymore. As I posted in my other thread, my underblanket was on the kitchen floor and my quilt was tossed...

    My partner and I were planting a bunch of seedlings last season.

    Anyone know how to wash my cotton Brazillian hammock with nettles? I'm thinking I could bind the nettles with cord so they don't become a tangled mess?

    Thanks. I guess the silver lining is I can use this as an opportunity to live a more minimalist lifestyle and maybe there's some insurance money I can spend on a new Dream Hammock. sad lol.

    Welcome, fellow colonial.

    If you have any questions about dialling in your setup, just ask. It can be a pretty steep learning curve. Do certainly get yourself an underquilt.
