I am just about convinced that a hammock is a great way to enjoy back country backpacking. A couple of questions remain.
1) Are there (m)any places (National Parks, State Parks, etc.) that don't allow the use of hammocks. It appears that they are welcome on the AT, but I'd hate to be told I couldn't hang a hammock.
2) Is it feasible to use a hammock on the ground as a pseudo-tent? Is it comfortable? Does it damage the hammock?
