    As long as you do it MY way...

    haha just kidding Brother, HYOH and all that entails both hiking and hammocking, enjoy nature your way and on your terms. That's the right way!

    This thread confirms my decision to mostly hike by myself!
    Not sure how anyone could balance all of the viewpoints listed above.

    That way I can get up and go or take my time and I donít have to worry about anyone elseís timeline.

    Note that Iím mostly a get up and go person and standing around for an hour waiting for someone to have their leisurely breakfast then think about packing up their gear just irritates me!

    It is interesting how adherents of each style can barely comprehend the other. Part of what makes escaping into nature relaxing is being on one's own schedule, whatever that may be. Going with the flow is a valuable skill but it is also a compromise.

    I'm a night owl, and like to take my time in the morning. It is nice to get into the next camp early enough to swim, hang out, take photos, etc. But I have more energy later in the day. I recently went on a bikepacking trip, and the first leg was traveling about 65 miles to meet the rest of the crew...I ended up leaving my house at 7:30pm. A bit extreme for most. (I did end up splitting the miles between that evening and the next morning, to make a lunchtime meetup, so it wasn't too crazy. And I enjoyed having the first night out to myself.)

    I'm not a morning person, at home or on the trail. When with a group, I feel rushed to pack up & eat in the morning. When I'm solo, as I am right now, I have a very leisurely breakfast, then pack up. However, I miss the comaraderie around the campfire at night. So, both solo & group hiking is good, just different.

    Always waking up in the morning, I run to the computer and start to do something there. But in the best of times, I want to lie on the bed as long as possible. To think of something interesting that awaits me, to drink coffee. Read the newspaper in the morning, but unfortunately such opportunities are rare.

    I really enjoy both. Sometimes I want to get up and get the day started. There is something wonderful about moving through the woods as it comes alive around you. With that said, coffee from the hammock can be bliss too. Rekindling the fire in the morning and taking it slow, enjoying the site and company make this a preferred choice. I think its a both sort of dilemma not one or the other for me.

    This is me but Iíve never hiked with someone else so I canít say how that goes. Iím usually walking by 8am-ish and thatís sleeping in and lounging to listen while I enjoy my coffee.

    Wow. It does not appear that 12trysomething has posted to HammockForums or to his own blog in over two years, but people are still reading his posts!
