I've been doing my due diligence on this awesome site, and on paper at least, I'm totally hooked! I'm 41, have old back injuries, and absolutely dread sleeping on the ground...so much so that I've actually avoided camping on occasion and just day hiked instead. I have a WBBB on the way, and in the meantime bought a hammock stand along with a Trek Light Double Hammock, which I received yesterday. I figured it could be my "Lay-around-like-a-bum" Hammock for inside when I'm not worried about bugs. So last night I gave hammock sleeping my first whirl, and had terrible results. The good part is that when I stood up out of the hammock, my back didn't bother me for a minute or two as is typical when I get out of my bed. That didn't surprise me though, as I've heard that benefit mentioned oodles of times on here and other sites. Now for the bad part. Despite being able to lay asymmetrically and nearly flat, there always seemed to be a tight area of fabric that would make a lower leg fall asleep! I flopped and flailed, and the same thing kept happening. I finally got so irked that I slept in bed for awhile and then decided to give the hammock another try later in the night. Same lousy results. I REALLY want to like this hammock gig, but not sure how to remedy this. Did some of you "converts" struggle with this initially too and find a solution? I know someone will tell me to put a pillow or something down there, but I just don't really want to have to add yet another something to my gear list. Oh and boy did I find out what you guys meant about the air circulating beneath you leading to cold sleeping. Apparently I'm a cold sleeper, because the thermostat said 75F, and I was still cold despite the fleece blanket on top of me. I'm not concerned at all about that though, because I know a nice UQ will solve it. I got up so darn mad this morning though that I was ready to say the heck with this hammock crap.
