    this works. you can also employ some spreader bars and hang side by side if a three-tree opportunity doesn't present itself.

    thanks for the advice! I actually have Dejoha's book but wasn't sure about the bunk bed style. It seems a bit difficult to get in and out of to me as well as a bit claustrophobic for whoever is on the bottom. i would be so scared of getting squashed! The opposite sides of the same tree idea sounds really good bullfrog! There are a lot of big trees here on the coast! I think my vertex rain fly is probably big enough to go over both hammocks if they are on the same tree like that. Saves me from having to buy something new!

    From what I can tell you have a couple options.

    1) Get a two person hammock. (I'm actually going to be trying that out in the near future with my new Treklite double) I hear this isn't very comfortable, especially for tossers and turners. Nevertheless I'm going to try it anyhow.

    2) Use trekking poles/stick/whatever for spreader bars for two hammocks in parallel. This requires some setup, and I don't know how the other hammock reacts when you wanna get out for a pee break.

    3) Bunk style. Getting into the upper hammock could be difficult.

    4) 3 tree method. Though this is not always available.

    5) Just sleep separately. It was a little bit... difficult... to get used to for the first couple times, but now me and the lady do it all the time. We truly look foreword to sleeping because we know we'll be out like lights once we crawl in.

    Edit: I'd personally avoid having the hammocks in a position where they could rub together. I've learned that even the least abrasive materials, when rubbing on your hammock all night, can make wear spots. Yes, in one night.

    This has been a good way for my wife and I too.

I'm thinking about getting two single hammocks and hanging them from the same tree at the head and a different one at the foot end. I'm wondering if anyone has tried this before and what advice they might have for me. Also I was wondering what kind of bug net and tarp would be good with this kind of set up. if they could be shared that would be ideal. I was looking at getting two of papa smurfs dream hammocks. I am 5' 10 and about 160 my boyfriend is about 6' and 180 in case that's important.
    Thanks in advance from a noobie~!
    possibly go back into clarks jungle hammocks and have a look at the Vertex it is specially designed for 2x people with Weight: 5 lbs 10 oz / 2.55 kg
    2-person / 3-Season
    2 beds with independent stability / Large storage area
    Patented
    but make sure your boy friend chips in 50% then you can kepp your 180 flex in case it dos`nt work Good Luck
