    Dang! Sorry to hear that Tobit, but like Hana Hanger said it's not for everyone. On the upside, next time a hanger starts telling you to get off the ground you can honestly tell them that you've tried it, now they should leave you alone!

    Happy tenting; it still beats the couch!

    Maybe if we leave them in the woods together they will make little hammocks.

    If it makes you feel any better, I am eyeing tent/tarps for ground use for an upcoming trip. Probibly either the ray-way tarp or a tarptent.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Have you tried a Hennessey or a bridge hammock?

    When a hammock clings, try a model that has side tieouts or utilizes a bridge to keep the sides from closing in......

    I love my Hennessey, but Hate the ENO (not a quality thing it's a "claustrophobic" thing...)

    Dibs?

    I am eyeing some trails out west for next year if I can swing it. Not too many trees in the desert.

    Never gonna happen. He might go sow his wild oats, but he'll always come home again when he's done playing in deserts. Be cool to hang between two of those really big cactus. Might be hell on the webbing, but it'd be cooooool.
