Tents are awful
I've been a camper since I was young. I've always camped in tents because that was how my parents did it. On a trip down to the Florida Keys a buddy had an extra hammock so I decided to give it a try. That was about 10 years ago and I haven't gone back to the tent since. I've always fumbled my way through different ways of rigging my hammock. Struggling with knots that have become impossible to untie, waking up on the ground, and occasionally getting rained on or freezing my butt off. All that changed when I found this forum. Now I've got an ENO Double Nest and I just made my first set of whoopie slings.
Every year for New Year's eve I camp on the spoil islands in the Indian River Lagoon here on the east coast of Central Florida. Every year I come back from the island wanting to figure out how to sleep in a hammock more often.
So, now I'm taking the plunge... After reading several threads on here on different ways to do it, I am going to attempt an indoor hang setup as a full-time bed replacement. Set-up starts tomorrow. I'll post a description and pictures if it goes well, and maybe if it goes horribly wrong as well. I weigh in at about 275, so if I can figure out a decent indoor hang, anybody can.
