    Our 1st Offical Hammock trip

    So we have played in the yard and basement with our hammock setups. But we have not actually spent the night outdoors. That is until this past Friday

    My Daughter and I have come to the Florida Keys for a College Course I am helping with and we are camping for 9 days.
    So we setup camp and this is what my setup looks like:



    We have not seen any other hammocks up but people have stopped to ask questions. The biggest being is it comfortable.

    And yes we have slept great.

    So far my only complaint is that I did not choose this spot to hang:



    This is in the state park up the road from us.

    Okay so we got to Pigeon key last night. The college kids I am with are working away and this is what I am doing:

    I might never sleep indoors again if I had that park a few miles down the road!
