Backpacker Magazine in issue May 2008 on page 15 of the Trail Log (letters to the Editor), an Emailer about why there weren't hammock reviews and stated that he noticed 'tons of people' hammocking. The editor replies ' tons of people' "surely not".
So all of us at Hammock Forums are not tons of people!!
I think we have enough members to go over the 4,000 lbs to qualify as at least 2 tons of hammocker people.
Why is Backpacker mag not in the real world?
Surely none of them go on this website.
What is with them?
I know most of the trips are out west where there are no trees.
They even did an issue years ago where none of the photos in the mag had any trees in them.
I would cancel my subscription if my daughter didn't give it to me as a present every year.
Please let backpacker mag know that we do count!
