I have been avoiding hammocks since 1968 when I had a bad experiance with one . But I have recently decided to bite the bullet and start hanging . Because
1 I need a lighter kit . Not too light but better then my air mattress ground pad etc etc .
Disclaimer .... It does not have to be too light since I don't do much more then a mile or two and then I use a rickshaw or a sled . I don't like that real thin flimsy material . I was even thinking of one of those semi cotton Nicarauguan jobs .
2 10,000 Bushcrafters can't be wrong
3 I need a better nights sleep .
Special needs .
Full figured . 5'll'' 250 pounds .
Best sleeping configuration . I want one that is like a lazy boy in a semi reclined state .
or if I can't have that at least I must sleep on my left side with my upper torso elevated .
Feet must not be elevated so Im thinking something big enough to sleep diaganolly but then can I elevate my torso do you think
( wait til your 65 .... you'll understand )
Im thinking of a double such as Dicks Sporting goods Eagle something ...... Ill go get the pic
Here it is .. Eagles Nest double eagle . I kind of like the Byers of Main job with the spreader bars too .
What do you think
