I just recently got back from a 3 day 11 mile hike and suddenly realized something the day after I got back home. I hurt, a lot. Its not from the hiking or sleeping in a hammock for two nights, no its from sleeping in my bed at home that I've been in for 5 years. I never noticed the pain before, but after 2 nights in the woods and 2 days with absolutely no back pain, it is clearly evident that I have to replace my bed. I've even thought of hanging a hammock in my bed room, but my wife isn't to fond of that idea. When you've been hurting everyday you don't notice how much you hurt until the pain is gone and once you are aware of the pain it's just that much more apparent to you, guess ignorance really is bliss. So just want to thank hammocks everywhere for pointing out that I am in constant pain and have never noticed.
