    Apparently you've already switched to hanging indoors. If you think going back to the ground is tough, try sleeping in a bed again. I'm a full time hanger and will never go back to a bed by choice.

    Interesting how many people who try it soon become full timers, or are looking for a way to hang a hammock at home. Hammocks have beds beat big time IMO, and at a fraction of the cost.
