    Hammock goes against everything?

    I am starting to wonder if the hammock goes against everything we are surrounded by. The world is flying by at a crazy pace. I can't keep up with it. Finding time to hang is so so hard. It seems the hammock really represents so many things that we are heading in the opposite direction of. I just wish more people could just slow down, relax and take it easy. Kinda like "man in a hurry". Andy Griffith. Oh well, I have decided to use mine for sleeping so that I can actually get some hammock time.

    We will never conquer a mountain. The mountain allows us to visit and with enough time asks us to kindly go back down. And sits in peace with or without our presence.

    I totally agree. For me the hammock represents the ultimate way to relax after a hard day of work, after hiking many miles or just chilling in the backyard. People need to slow down. One day hike I went on, I laid in my hammock and watch the river go by for a couple of hours. Doing this helps to make my day to day more tolerable.

    Well, there are ways to counter.

    Not only do I sleep in a hammock about 360 nights a year, but the chair in front of my desk at home is a hammock chair and the chair I kill brain cells from while watching TV is also a hammock chair. Genuine Draft makes me snuggle with her on the couch sometimes, so my next project is one of those hanging couches that was posted here a year ago, or so.

    We would be one step closer to world peace, if everyone slept in a hammock..

    I hate it when my beer starts to tell me what to do, like "snuggle up with me over here, OK?"


    I know GD is what his GF / Spouse is called on here and on the trail, but it does read kind of like maybe his beer is starting to control his life. LOL

    I dated a girl who couldn't stop. I mean always had to be doing something. It was so hard just to chill out and swing. I am so glad that I'm free of that.
    I love this quote below.

    "If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer; but if he spends his whole day as a spectulator , shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is esteemed an industrious and enterprising citizen."
    Henry David Thoreau

    Perhaps it's the other way around? Maybe it is we who are going against the grain and the hammock is a gentle reminder to get back to the slowness of life.

    Enjoy the elevation
