My family is about 50/50. I go on an annual BWCA trip with my brother, father and anyone else we can scrape up. My father is intrigued, last year I was forced out of our tent by a tree root and hung in my hammock instead. Dad thought it was cool. My brother and I have gone round and round about this and he thinks I am nuts. I have not been able to show him my new HH exped and tarp and all that, but he swears we just bring hammocks to read in and nap during the day. Hopefully I will convince him this summer when the deluge washes under his one man tent and gets his stuff wet while I am high and dry swinging in the breeze. My wife thinks that I am crazy for crawling out of a nice warm bed when I cant sleep to go lay in my hammock. I tell her its her snorring.
