In the beginning god created the Heavens, and the Earth. This has been widely accepted as a good thing. The problem, however, since about day 7 is that man has spent his nights on the ground. Today, roughly day 1,660,750,000,000 (plus or minus a week) I realized that man should once again strive for the heavens. With that revelation I shall be getting my lazy conformist butt off the ground. Thats right I going Arboreal. (Not as widely accepted, but still a very good thing)
With that in mind I am moving into the "seriously considering" phase of a 2011 through hike. since I'm in the market for a whole new sleeping system as it is, this seemed like a good time to make the change. I could use any input on making the switch from a tent to hammock. The only hammock I have ever owned is an Amazonas, Traveller. The Traveller is comfortable, but I don't think it would hold up to daily use (ten years in a closet would do that).
