    how often do you hang?

    excluding the full timers that sleep in their hammocks every night because their answer is obvious, how often do you hang in your hammock typically? realized today i havent hung my hammock in about 2 weeks

    I'm not a full timer (YET) but try to sleep in my hammock as much as possible. Typically 4 or 5 nights a week.

    Not being married is awesome!

    Every weekend. If I can't get to the woods I spend the nights in the back yard.
    Everyone ought to believe in something....I believe I'll go set up the hammock!

    I try to go out for a hike and hang every two weeks. In reality, over the last two years, I've averaged closer to every three weeks. My philosophy is that I have to hike and hang to justify all the money I've spent on hiking/hammock hanging. I've invested major freaking simoleans - beaucoup bucks.

    A new pack, new hiking boots, underquilts, topquilts, cuben fiber tarp, Amsteel, Zing-It, Dutchware, puffy clothes, water filters, stoves - I've probably dropped $3000 in the last two years, easily (and it's probably more). There's nothing cheap about this sport (or hobby, for you non-hiking car campers).

    And that's just gear purchases - gas and food ain't cheap.

    I hear you loud and clear. I don't even want to know what I've put into this hobby. But I look at it from a health standpoint too and that help justify it a little more

    I spend typically a couple hours in my lounging hammocks ( eno single and doublenest) 4 days a week. And my camping hammocks once or twice a month overnight ( hh or wbbb) dependent on the season. Sometimes way more sometimes less

    The health standpoint is a major plus - knowing you're going on a hike that will give you a tremendous workout makes all the money worth it. And learning how to survive in the wilderness is another thing I value - that's worth spending money on.

    Are we counting hours spent in the hammock mentally, or just physically?

    This summer I've been averaging nearly 5 nights a week in a hammock, with only very limited opportunities during the day. When camping I spend as much time lounging in the hammock as the wife and kids will allow.
