Hey guys, thanks for infecting me with hammock fever when I randomly stumbled across this site. Now, three weeks before I leave, you all have got me thinking about ditching my tent for my 11 month, 11 country trip around the world and using a hammock instead .
I could be sleeping in my tent (or hammock) for up to a month at a time, so for the sake of preserving my posture I was thinking, IF I got a hammock, about getting the JRB BMBH, but I have a few questions...
The website says it fits people up to 6'3". I am exactly 6'3", how much room can I really expect to have?
Also, some guy on youtube posted a video about the BMBH and noted some pretty shoddy stitching. Has anyone else had this problem or was his just a lemon?
How long have you had your BMBH or JRB hammock and could it stand up to 11 months of international beating?
The omni tape used to secure the bug net... I just feel really sketchy about that... how much of a PITA is it really?
Oh and I don't expect to be cold very much, in case anyone was wondering. In fact, I'll go ahead and post the list of countries I'm going to just in case anyone has any inputs about humidity, sun exposure for the tent, etc.
Haiti, Dominican Republic, Thailand, Cambodia, China, Philippines, Mozambique, Malawi, somewhere else in Africa, Turkey, Romania.
