Being a lifelong sailor, it occurred to me a few years ago that a hammock might work well in the woods. I thought it was a great idea... bought an Army Surplus hammock, and nearly froze on the first night out, at 50 degrees F!
Then I found this forum, and learned that there were many people way ahead of me.
It was amusing to learn that Mr. Hennessey started out with the same hammock as I did!
