Mods if this thread is breaking any kind of rules, then I apologize and feel free to delete this thread.
I am doing a Research Paper for my ENG-120 class. It is an Argumentative/Persuasive style essay for the assignment. My instructor heard me talking about my hammock to another student and wanted me to base my paper on hammocks and the benefits of switching to them from traditional ground based camping. He seemed quite curious on the topic so this will be great for the both of us. Him -being curious- and me -being enthusiastic about writing on the subject- will make for a more enjoyable paper to read and write.
I wanted to gather some primary research by actually getting feedback from some of yall on what you consider the most important benefit to hammock camping vs traditional camping.
Granted there are many benefits that could be listed, I would like to narrow it down to just a few key benefits if possible as to keep my essay to the required word count as instructed.
I would like to use a pole for this but sometimes things can get left out, so what I will do in addition to a pole is allow the replier to list their top 5 benefits in order of importance in the reply. Your personal top 5 will be listed separately from the Pole above.
Remember this is an essay meant to persuade an actual audience into hammock camping and will be presented to possibly hundreds of people so lets keep everything realistic, for answers, as possible.
Just simply reply with this and fill in the blanks for your top 5.
Keep it short and sweet. To those who reply, thanks so much for your help. I will be sure to Cite hammockforums.net in my Works Cited page..
