    Finally got my husband in the hammock!

    I got my husband to try out the new 11 foot DL hammock I made. The pad holds the hammock so that it is more open and the length helped too. He actually took a nap in it! He isn't sure yet that he could sleep all night in one, but the nap was great progress!!!
    Keep movin', keep believing and enjoy the journey!

    WOW, CONGRATULATIONS! Pretty soon you might have to arm wrestle him,
    (spelling I know, I know) to get your hammock away from him. You never know how these things will go. New converts seem to have a way of going all out to prove their devotion.

    I think you are the first person to post that they got their HUSBAND to try a hammock. It is normally men, who want their wife to try hanging.

    Congratulations, well done.

    Way to go!!!! Now if I could just get mine to relax enough to go there too Not that it's a competition or anything, but you'd kind-of think I'd been able to convince mine first
