The reason i have decided to go with a hammock is for the comfort. I used to be big time car camper but on the cases when all i had to sleep on was a CCF pad i seemed to find every root and rock in area after i had laid down. The only way i could get a decent nights sleep was if i was just dead tired or carrying a good drunk..
I was talking with a buddy of mine who is doing section hikes of the AT and he rekindled my love of hiking and camping. I asked him about his gear and he told me he was just starting to experiment with Hammock camping. He told me about this strange guy on YouTube named Shug and that i needed to watch his videos. I did and now im hooked! My first hammock is on order and hopefully will be here soon.
