My son slept on the ground for his Ordeal, and since he wasn't using his hammock I used it for the night before my Brotherhood ceremony and service. He saw the hammock every time he sat down for a meal and said he wanted to give me the evil eye for taunting him with his hammock. LOL
I was the only hammock camper all weekend at Ordeal. That being said, our troop has at least 12 boys and 6 adults hanging. It's awesome to see!
The more Scouting Magazine pushes the use of hammocks, the more I ask about the National High Adventure Bases ending their ban on hanging. It's a little ridiculous that Scouting promotes hammocks, but not using them in their own camps.
