    Sleeping double in a ridgerunner?

    Has anyone tried sleeping double in the Ridgerunner? My girl likes to snuggle I just thought if I got it in the double 1.7 it might work? Anyone?

    The way it curves inward around the waist, there wouldn't be much room for that (a gathered end is actually roomier from that standpoint.

    I don't know many people that can comfortably sleep two in a hammock for more than a nap. I don't think it would work.

    I haven't tried it in a RR, but in other hammocks, both gathered end and bridge styles, it's fun and cozy for a few minutes and hot and cramped after that. It's okay for fun, but not for sleeping.

    I'm not a big guy but I feel like I just fit. There is no way 2 adults would.

    picture the summer heat all hot and sweaty with the boys stuck to your leg. You will be glad that they dont weigh 130 and toss and turn with you all night.

    From the outside you would look like two pitbulls fighting in a burlap bag.

    I'm a big guy and use a big hammock but even a little kid is to much after a very few minutes.

    Im fairly slim and tall---------not much room in the rr, especially for 2!
    FYI: If you want to know what type a certain bear is, sneak up behind it and kick it. Then,
    run like crazy and climb up a tree. If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black
    bear. If the bear just pushes the tree over and eats you, it's a grizzly bear : )


    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either, just leave me alone.
