    Have you ever been hasselled by park rangers?

    Have you ever have park rangers make you take your hammock down? Perhaps because it "damages trees" or because of some safety regulation? I'm just curious.

    Not yet, but I'm sure it has happened or could easily happen.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
    Romans 8:18,21-22

    I have never been hasselled for it, but I have been questioned about it hurting the trees. I showed them the webbing and even untied it to shew them that it didn't hurt anything and they were cool about it, they actually thought it was a neat idea (go figure ). I have heard of places making people take down their hammocks though because of those reasons.

    Had a ranger wake me up once, but he was just checking to see if I had a permit.

    pavins and bass river state parks (NJ). had to hang my tarp with webbing , not rope. (hammock had webbing) said i set a bad example to the other campers with their cloth lines and blue tarps. they were nice about it. ( had extra tie downs straps in truck) other campers were pointing at my sight saying he has ropes on trees (mason line).

    in the winter, same rangers, no problems
