If ya don't have any Hangin' Buddies ya might jus hafta make yer own. I'm not talking like Frankenstein, rather bringing some tenters 'into the light'.
Have a few friends try out your rig or see what Hennessy has left from their 'scratch, dent and demo sale' and get a spare rig for a 'homeless' buddy.
Also setting up at a campground is a great way to introduce folk to the Hangin' Lifestyle. The people there are already 'outdoorsy' folk and likely to be intrigued. Let them try 'er out, tell them about the forums here and let nature take it's course. I have been seing more of the string hammocks at the campgrounds but these folk might not realize that they can stay in a hammock all night, get a good nights rest and still not get eaten alive.
Get a 100 copies of dejoha's The Ultimate Hang and drop them from a low flying plane onto George St. at 2 A.M. Kinda like WKRP and the turkey give away, just less messy. You could follow up by selling them on the street and when the guy (or gal) wonders what the heck they bought the night before they would have the book as a reference. Ok, maybe stick wit the first two.
Seriously though, those not familiar with the comfort and quick set up of a hammock may have either never considered or disregarded the hammock as being uncomfortable or to 'fiddly'. I had never considered a hammock until I stumbled across Shug's videos while reviewing camp stoves. What intrigued me was the set up time and the comfort. I always woke up sore (bad back) and usually with a headache from being on the damp uncomfortable ground. Those videos and this forum convinced me to purchase my first hammock. I remember seeing a hammock set up at a provincial campground and thinking it looked cool, but uncomfortable and cramped and that it would kill my back,not having any support. I never did actually see the person that had the rig, otherwise I might have come around sooner.
So go forth and be a fisher of hammockers! Tell them of the peace and rest of a comfortable nights sleep and the glory of watching the dawn of a new day from the safe cocoon of a hallowed hammock, free and unfettered by the walls and poles of the misbegotten tent. Pull them up from their soggy ground dwelling ways and have them join us in the warm sunshine amongst the trees and the fresh, free air in the warm and tender embrace of nylon and overstuffed down.
