    Finally did my first night in my HH Explorer!

    I finally did it! It was a kinda cool night, so I put another sleeping bag and thermarest down under me, then was in a sleeping bag, and I can't believe how well I slept! Most comfortable nights sleep I've ever had!

    I did discover a pretty big problem though.... When I went to go to bed today, my bed feels so flat and just... unhammocklike! It makes me wonder how I ever slept in it and why humans don't just sleep in hammocks, not beds!

    Good for you. Make sure to keep an eye out for Ontario get togethers. Many of us have gotten together many times in the past.

    Just spent my fourth night hanging in my front yard to test my HH in the rain and woke up thinking the same thing. When I used a tent for backpacking I never said to myself "Gee I think I'll sleep in the tent tonight." Now I look forward to my "test" hangs. Think I'll do it again tonight!

    Wow thats cool! Love the wooden room! Is that a bedroom or living room or something? I think someone may have something to say about it if I tried that :P. I will probably be banished to hang in the mechanical room or something lol.

    Haha, that's cool But I think I would suffer the same future as canuck_kayaker if I ever tried it.
    But who says that would be a bad thing...

    Canuck_Kayaker, congrats on the first night out. May it be the first of many!

    sargevining, I think my wife would take it wrong if I set my hammock up in the bedroom but man that looks comfy.
