I think this forum made me a 'hanger'. At first I wasn't that interested because I estimated it would increase my backpack weight by 4oz (yes, I'm a weight weenie) and I had the misconception that it meant sleeping like a banana. But I read thread after thread and learned that a correct lie was flat and so many of you reveled in getting a good night's sleep without aches and pains. So, I purchased a parachute hammock about a month ago and haven't slept in my bed since. Now when I backpack with my BB I actually look forward to turning-in for the night. In my tent, I would toss and turn and wake up with sore hips, back ache and a stiff neck. Now, I don't want to get up. So, I am thankful that I found this forum and thank all of you for your contributions!
