    at 3am

    I was rolling around in the bed unable to sleep and I thought to myself. (Hey Wes why don't you just go set up your Hennessy) I thought about it for a minute then woke up and brought it down to my building and hung it between two metal poles . I had to move my jeep forward and a trailer. I also used a bucket and a lawnmower for the side pullouts haha. Since I was close to home I decided id bring the bigger sleeper bag. ( SlumberJack 15 degree ) I also got to use the Hennessy Super Shelter for the first time. loved it!! It was my first time without a pad under my back. I slept like a baby. and if any of you remember my first post on here was about how I couldn't find a way to sleep in the hammock. well not having a pad under me is the key! I have finally found the comfort in hanging. and I will not turn back now haha

    The truck bed cover suspended over the hammock. Just a joke.

    But seriously, keep an eye on those poles you are tied to and however they are secured themselves, to the ground and/or roof. Hammock suspensions are known to put a lot of force on whatever they are tied to.

    Glad to hear you have finally found comfort, and in a HHSS!
    Apparently, signature that I used from 2006 no longer tolerated so now deleted.
