Just returned from my first hiking camping trip. Its was only a one day deal but man am I sore! I just found out how out of shape I really am. My son (9) and I hiked 7 miles (I know "light weight") round trip. The high light of the whole thing was our hammocks. I went cheap to see if I was going to like it. I picked up 2 Grand Trunk ultralights and a tarp from walmart. I was asking a lot of the poor hammock cause I weigh in at 230+ but not only did it hold up but I was very comfy. My son said he didn't sleep well at all in it but we went to bed around 9 because it started raining and he didn't wake till 8. After he made this comment I asked him if the thunder storms had kept him awake. His answer "there were thunderstorms?" Let me tell you the storms were very bad and loud. Needless to say I think he slept better than he let on. As I said there was a lot of rain but we both stayed drier than we would have in my old tent.
I think I will be in the market for an ENO double real soon.
