    I used to set up my tent on my balcony.
    Then I set up my hammock on my balcony.
    Now I have my hammock in my bedroom.
    Life is good!!

    I sleep in my hammock in the yard and inside my house.

    I am fortunate in that I have really great neighbors (and a fantastic, supportive partner). They see me camp out and either don't mind, think its cool enough to ask questions and test drive whatever hammock I have hung for five to ten minutes, or wonder what that crazy/eccentric cKayt is doin' now. Most of the latter just shake their heads while giggling.

    Ya have ta test out your gear and any tweaks, right?
    What better place than the yard?

    I have a commercial hammock stand out on our deck overlooking the mountains. Nap in it mostly because I'm a cuddler at night. Two sleeping in a hammock all night gets a little tricky and not as comfortable compared to naps.

    This is just part of our view. The mountain peaks are out to the right. If weather is drizzling or just not that great, we keep the doors open but haul the hammock stand into the doorway.

    Ive set up my tent in the garden, only to dry/clean it after uni trips (They never choose camps with any hanging possibilities), never to sleep in it.

    The hammock hangs in the garden quite often. Until i diy this new one which will be too long for the garden

    VOLUNTARILY set up my tent and go sleep in it???

    In my tent, I used to wake up before dawn, sore & uncomfortable, wondering when I would see first light. Now I wake up in my hammock, all nice & comfy, wondering if I missed lunch!

    hei,

    Put my tent up in the garden only to clean it up.

    This summer I have been forced to sleep in tent too much, friends picking up islands without trees...

    I do have no visible neighbors at the back of my house, so I can do there moreless what I want to.

    But next weekend I am going to hang again!

    I may not get approval from the neighbors but, Atleast my hammock supports me...

    My forum name is Fish<><; I'm in the navy; and I hate sleeping on the ground. If I didn't need ground to walk on or measure resistance to, I think I could happily give it up.

    If that's the only reason your neighbors think you're nuts, you're doing it wrong. :grin:

    Slept in the back yard a few times. Some of them have even been on purpose! I love my hammocks. Never going to ground again.
