I've been hanging out on this forum (no pun intended - well, maybe) for a few weeks and finally registered. I first saw a reference to hammock camping on another forum and that started me doing some research.
I'm an avid motorcycle rider and often camp out while touring but I'm getting old and tenting doesn't have as much charm for me as it once did. So.. on to hammocks. I've recently ordered a WBBB for my use and I have a question that I haven't seen answered here.
What do you do when you have no trees? I know that the hammock can be used as a bivy, but can a hammock be hung from a permanent structure as in a highway rest area picnic table shelter or a power pole or a combination of the two?
Has anyone here ever done this? Have you ever had any problems with authorities? I know that where there's a will, there's a way. Often times while riding, I just need to get off the bike and get a couple hours of sleep. Rest areas are the most convenient but sometimes other options are presented.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts. Great forum, by the way!
