Hammock use has grown greatly, scouts or otherwise. One year ago, my last trip to the Sipsey Wilderness in AL, I saw more hammocks than I did tents. I bet even a year or two prior, odds are I would have seen zero hammocks on most days.
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
